  • ICF on W2K3 domain controller

    hello,
    i need advice about ICF on W2K3, is there any reason to enable integrated firewall on domain controller? I'm planning to install few Windows 2003 domain controller replicas on existing domain, but don't know will the ICF automatically open ports for AD?

    Thanks

    Personally i wouldn't have the firewall enabled but i would ensure i was fully covered in other areas.

      Hello,

      ICF is dedicated to protect windows systems directly connected to Internet.
      You don't need to enable it on DC.
      If you want to secure your domain controller use d Security Configuration and Analysis consoles. Use one of the dc specific templates securedc and hisecdc.

      Windows 2003 sp1 also include Security Configuration Wizard.
      It is an attack-surface reduction tool for the Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 family of products. SCW guides administrators in creating security policies based on the minimum functionality required for a server's role or roles.
      For more details see:
