Best Practices Analyzer for Routing and Remote Access Services

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

In Windows management, best practices are guidelines that are considered the ideal way, under normal circumstances, to configure a server as defined by experts. While best practice violations, even critical ones, are not necessarily problematic, they indicate server configurations that can result in poor performance, poor reliability, unexpected conflicts, increased security risks, or other potential problems.

Topics in this section can help you bring Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) running on Windows Server® 2008 R2 into compliance with best practices. RRAS is one of the roles services installed as part of the Network Policy and Access Service server role. Content in this section is most valuable to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of NPAS, and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of their RRAS configuration that are noncompliant with best practices.

For more information about Best Practices Analyzer and scans, see Best Practices Analyzer.
