Adding 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. Select the Add Roles link and then click Next to bypass the Add Roles Wizard’s initial page.

On the next wizard page (see Figure 18.1), select the Routing and Remote Access Services check box. This adds the Remote Access Service and the Routing service. Click Next and then click Install to install Routing and Remote Access Services.

Did you Know?

You may have already added the Network Policy and Access Services role during your exploration of Hour 17. If you did not add the Routing and Remote Access Services when installing the role, you can add this service from the Server Manager. With the Network Policy and Access Services node selected in the node tree, click the Add Role Services link in the Details pane. The Add Role Services Wizard opens. Select the Routing and Remote Access Services check box and then click Install. The service is added to the server and the Routing and Remote Access node appears as a subnode of the Network Policy and Access Services node.

After RRAS is installed (as part of the Network Policy and Access Services role), the Routing and Remote Access snap-in is added to the Server Manager (as a subnode of the Network Policy and Access Services node). The Routing and Remote Access snap-in can also be started via an icon that is added to the Administrative Tools menu (on the Start menu). This enables you to run the Routing and Remote Access snap-in in the MMC (rather than in the Server Manager).
