  • You can use a Windows 2003 Domain controller. With a Windows 2003 domain controller to deploy NAP client configuration you should connect to your domain controller from a Windows 2008 server(ideally where NPS, and other NAP related server roles are installed) and do the NAP Client configuration for you domain clients remotely using mmc.

  • One additional thing to note here... if you are planning to deploy wired or wireless connection settings through Group Policy, especially valuable when deploying 802.1X, you'll need to extend your domain schema.  See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727029.aspx for the specifics.  If you upgrade your domain to WS2008, these extensions are included.
