The New Policies Wizard in Configuration Manager 2007 lets you create ConfigMgr NAP policies that you want to be included in Network Access Protection (NAP) evaluation, and specify when they will be become active on Configuration Manager 2007 clients that are able to support Network Access Protection.

Policies created in this Configuration Manager 2007 site apply to all computers in the All Systems collection and will flow down to child sites that are also enabled for Network Access Protection.

Once you have completed the wizard, the settings you define can then be modified in two places:

Software updates can also be included in NAP evaluation with the option Enable NAP evaluation in the Deploy Software Updates Wizard, and they can be included as a software update property under the Software Updates node.

If the Configuration Manager NAP policies will result in computers having restricted network access if they do not have the selected software updates, ensure that those software updates are available on a sufficient number of distribution points serving as remediation servers so that remediation will occur in a timely fashion.
