Appendix A

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use this Network Planning Preparation Sheet to gather the information required to install a foundation network. This topic provides tables that contain the individual configuration items for each server computer for which you must supply information or specific values during the installation or configuration process. Example values are provided for each configuration item.

For planning and tracking purposes, spaces are provided in each table for you to enter the values used for your deployment. If you log security-related values in these tables, you should store the information in a secure location.
