To exempt computers from NAP health checks when you use NAP with IPsec enforcement, you can autoenroll members of a security group with NAP exemption certificates. To autoenroll exempted computers, create a NAP exemption certificate template and grant enroll and autoenroll permissions to the IPsec NAP exemption group created in this procedure. For more information, see Create Health Certificate Templates.
Membership in the local Domain Admins group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).
