    good afternoon

    Friends of the community I would like to collaborate with the next topic I am implementing security templates, MSCM gives me templates for different operating systems W2003sp2 W2008 w2008r2 for each operating system security templates shows me different roles for DNS, DHCP, Domain Controller, Hyper V, terminal server, web server, member server security.

    My question is this ………………….. if I have a server which has the role of Domain controller with DNS + DHCP + File Server that I apply the template Domain Controller only or all meeting the roles of servers over menber server security. or only apply to Server Security Menber my servers is protected.
