Adding the Network Policy and Access Services Role

To add the Network Policy and Access Services role to the server’s configuration, use the Add Roles Wizard. Because the Network Policy and Access Services role is actually a group of bundled remote access, routing, and access security services, you should add only the services you need on the server when you install the role. For example, this hour concentrates on remote access and virtual private networking, so we install only a subset of the services provided by the Network Policy and Access Services role.

You can add the Network Policy and Access Services role from the Initial Configuration Tasks window or the Server Manager (the Add Roles link is available in the Server Manager when the Roles node is selected in the node tree). Follow these steps:

1. Select the Add Roles link. The Add Roles Wizard opens. Click Next to bypass the Add Roles Wizard’s initial page.

2. On the next wizard page, select the Network Policy and Access Services check box (see Figure 17.1). Then click Next.

4. On the next page, you select the Network Policy and Access Services that you want to install. Check the Network Policy Server and the Remote Access Service check boxes (see Figure 17.2). Then click Next.

5. The confirmation page for the installation of the Network Policy and Access Services role appears. Click Install.

The Network Policy and Access Services role, including the Network Policy Server and the Remote Access Services, is installed. Click Close to close the wizard window.

In the Server Manager (click the Server Manager icon in the Quick Launch toolbar), expand the Roles node and then click the Network Policy and Access Services node. Any events logged related to the role appear in the Events area of the Details pane.

The status of services related to the role is also shown in the Details pane in the System Services area (see Figure 17.3). The Routing and Remote Access Service is currently “stopped.”

The Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) must be started before you can configure remote access. Let’s look at starting RRAS and then look at the RRAS configuration possibilities.
