DirectAccess Test Lab Guides for Windows Server 2016


Three DirectAccess Test Lab Guides are now live on the Web, allowing you to test a variety of DirectAccess scenarios in a lab environment before scaling your DirectAccess solution to your production environment.

Following are brief descriptions of the new guides.

Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess in a Cluster with Windows NLB. This guide contains instructions for configuring and demonstrating Remote Access using six servers and two client computers. The completed Remote Access test lab with NLB simulates an intranet, the Internet, and a home network and demonstrates Remote Access functionality in different Internet connection scenarios.

Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate a DirectAccess Multisite Deployment. This guide contains instructions for configuring and demonstrating Remote Access using nine servers and three client computers. The completed Remote Access multisite test lab simulates an intranet, the Internet, and a home network and demonstrates Remote Access functionality in different Internet connection scenarios.

Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess with OTP Authentication and RSA SecurID. Remote Access in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2012 adds support for client authentication with one time passwords (OTP). For the purposes of this test lab, only RSA SecurID is used to demonstrate OTP functionality with Remote Access. Other RADIUS based OTP solutions are supported as well, but are outside the scope of this test lab. This guide contains instructions for configuring and demonstrating Remote Access using six servers and two client computers. The completed Remote Access with OTP test lab simulates an intranet, the Internet, and a home network, and demonstrates Remote Access functionality in different Internet connection scenarios.
