I've setup a Windows 2008 R2 server with an Active Directory Domain Services role. I would like to apply the Specialized Security – Limited Functionality (SSLF) security baseline to it, but am unsure how to go about this.

I have downloaded and installed Security Compliance Manager tool. I think I need to use some file from this, but am unsure which one and how to apply it to the 2008 Server. I am really new to all this so step by step guides would be greatly appreciated.

  • Move this to Server Fault.

  • You'll want the GPOAccelerator and a method to test. Everything you need to know about securing server 2008 (as a baseline) can be found here: docstoc.com/docs/5089940/Windows-Server-2008-Security-Guide

  • @SteveSyfuhs, I'm on the fence... it is a sysadmin q, but it is about hardening the system...

  • I'm with @SteveSyfuhs on this one. If the question was about specific configuration options, or looking to identify baselines, it would be more relevant here. However, @bert48 seems to already have a baseline in mind and just needs to get it on to the system. That's much more a "Server Admin" function than it is an "IT Security" issue.
