Identifying Your Routing and Remote Access Deployment Goals

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Correctly identifying your Routing and Remote Access service (RRAS) deployment goals is essential for the success of your RRAS design project. Depending on the size of your organization and the level of involvement that you want to provide for the information technology (IT) staff in any partner organizations, form a project team that can clearly articulate real-world deployment issues in a vision statement. Make sure that the members of this team understand the direction in which your deployment project must move in order to reach your RRAS deployment goals.

When you write your vision statement, identify, clarify, and refine your deployment goals. Prioritize and, possibly, combine your deployment goals so that you can design and deploy RRAS by using an iterative approach. You can take advantage of existing, documented, and predefined RRAS deployment goals that are relevant to the RRAS designs and develop a working solution for your scenarios.

The following table lists the main tasks for articulating, refining, and subsequently documenting your RRAS deployment goals.
