Checklist: Host Managed Applications
Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012
In an environment of connected systems that are built on .NET Framework 3.0, deploying Application Server Foundation makes the seamless integration of systems possible. It also simplifies the deployment and operation of managed applications.
Review the features and functions of Application Server Foundation.
Install Application Server Foundation on a single server using the Add Roles Wizard.
Configure Application Server role services to support the applications that you will run. You may want to first install and run a test application that is designed to use the role services that you configure. Then, run the applications in your production environment.
