    With Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2, a number of the registry parameters used in previous OS’s have been deprecated and all of these configurations are now autotuned by the OS.  This includes TCP Receive Window Scaling which necessitated adding Tcp1323Opts in the registry to enable it on older OS’s.

    The guid mentions that  certain parameters like MaxHashTableSize  are no longer relevant in windows 2008,however it does not take about related settings like MaxFreeTcbs . There are also a lot of other settings like Tcp1323Opts  that  enables  RFC 1323 that are not mentioned here ? are all these configurations autotuned by the windows server now?
