Bootstrap Profile Sample

The Bootstrap profile sample can be used to authenticate to a wireless network for the first time before the computer has joined a domain.

This profile does not validate the certificates presented by the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server, and should not be used after the machine is joined to a domain.

This sample is configured to use Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 security running in Enterprise mode (WPA2-Enterprise). Other security types can be used as long as the authentication method is PEAP-MSCHAPv2.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed: Changes are implemented on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed to optimize wireless networking performance. The default setting for autoSwitch when this element is not set in a wireless LAN profile has changed. The default setting is changed to "false" on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed. The default setting was "true" on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. Please refer to the autoSwitch schema element description for more information.

Windows XP with SP3 and Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with SP2: The name child of the WLANProfile element is ignored. The name of the profile, as stored in the profile store, is derived from the name child of the SSID element. The cacheUserData, authMode, and singleSignOn children of the OneX element are not supported, and should be removed from the profile before use.
