Network Policy commands

The following entries provide details for each command.

add np

Adds a network policy to the Network Policy Server (NPS) configuration.

Syntax

add np [ name = ] name [ [ state = ] Enable | Disable [ processingorder = ] processingorder [ policysource = ] policysource [ conditionid = ] conditionid [ conditiondata = ] conditiondata [ profileid = ] profileid ([ advprofiletype = ] type [ advprofiledata = ] data ) [ profiledata = ] profiledata ]

Parameters

name


Required. Specifies the name of the network policy that you want to add.
state


Optional. Specifies whether the network policy is enabled or disabled. The default is enabled.
processingorder


Optional. Specifies the numeric position of this policy in the list of policies configured in NPS. Policies highest in the list (for example, at first position) are processed by NPS first. Policies added at positions above other policies cause the positions of the other policies to drop in the list by one position. If processingorder is not specified, the policy is added at the end of the list.
policysource


Optional. Specifies the type of RADIUS client that can send connection requests that match this policy. An integer value of zero through five must be used to designate the type of RADIUS client that is allowed for the policy. The default value of zero allows connection requests from any type of RADIUS client. See the Remarks section for all valid values.
conditionid


Required. Specifies the condition attribute name or ID that you want to configure in this network policy.You can view the list of available condition attributes at the netsh prompt by running the show npconditionattributes command. See the section "NPS attributes" for more information.
profileid


Optional. Specifies an attribute that you want to add to the network policy. Use profiledata to specify the value of the attribute defined by profileid. In addition, each profileid that you specify can be followed by multiple pairs of parameters named advprofiletype and advprofiledata. The syntax for these parameters is:[advprofiletype= ] type [advprofiledata=] data You can view the list of available settings attributes at the netsh prompt by running the show npprofileattributes command.See the Remarks section and "NPS attributes" for more information.
advprofiletype


Optional. Specifies an attribute that you want to add to the network policy. This parameter is a sub-parameter of and must be preceded by the profileid parameter. Use advprofiledata to add values for the attribute defined with advprofiletype.
advprofiledata


Optional. Specifies the value of the attribute defined with advprofiletype. This parameter is a sub-parameter of and must be preceded by the profileid parameter. In addition, you must specify advprofiletype when you use advprofiledata.
profiledata


Optional. Specifies the value of the attribute defined with profileid. For example, if the attribute specified in profileid is NP-Authentication-Type (0x1009), the value of profiledata might be 0x3 (MS-CHAP v1) or 0x4 (MS-CHAP v2). In cases where multiple values are allowed for an attribute, they can be listed:profileid = "0x1009" profiledata = "0x3" profiledata = "0x4" profiledata = "0x9" profiledata = "0xa"

Remarks on authentication methods

Network policy is configured by default with the following authentication method settings:

  • Microsoft Encrypted Authentication version 2 (MS-CHAP v2, profiledata=0x4) and User can change password after it has expired (profiledata=0xa)

  • Microsoft Encrypted Authentication (MS-CHAP, profiledata=0x3) and User can change password after it has expired (profiledata=0x9)

In the NPS console, these authentication settings are located on the Settings tab of network policies under Constraints and Authentication Methods.

Remarks on policysource

For policysource, valid values are:

ID Policy Source

0

Unspecified (default)

1

Terminal Services Gateway

2

Remote Access Server (VPN or Dial-up)

3

DHCP server

4

Wireless Access Point

5

Health Registration Authority

Remarks on configuring IP filters

You can use the profileid, advprofiletype, and advprofiledata parameters to configure IP filters for the network policy that you add. For more information, see the section "Configuring IP filters with Netsh NPS commands."

delete np

Deletes the specified network policy.

Syntax

delete np [ name = ] name

Parameters

name


Required. Specifies the name of the network policy that you want to delete.

Example

The following examples delete a network policy named NP1 from the NPS server configuration.

delete np name = NP1

delete np NP1

rename np

Changes the name of a network policy.

Syntax

rename np [ name = ] name [ newname = ] newname

Parameters

name


Required. Specifies the network policy that you want to rename.
newname


Required. Specifies the new name for the network policy.

Examples

The following examples rename a network policy from NP1 to NP2. The examples demonstrate that the command can be run with the parameter tags, such as name=, and without them.

rename np name = NP1 newname = NP2

rename np NP1 NP2

reset np

Deletes all network policies that are configured in NPS and restores the default network policy.

Caution
Do not run this command if you want to maintain any of the network policies that you have configured at the NPS server. This command deletes all network policies that you have configured, and after running this command, your network policies cannot be recovered. Before you run this command, it is recommended that you use the export command to save the NPS server configuration to an XML file.

Syntax

reset np

set np

Changes the value of one or more properties of an existing network policy. Values specified by this command overwrite the existing values.

Syntax

set np [ name = ] name [ [ state = ] Enable | Disable [ processingorder = ] processingorder [ policysource = ] policysource [ conditionid = ] conditionid [ conditiondata = ] conditiondata [ profileid = ] profileid ([ advprofiletype = ] type [ advprofiledata = ] data ) [ profiledata = ] profiledata ]

Parameters

name


Required. Specifies the name of the network policy that you want to add.
state


Optional. Specifies whether the network policy is enabled or disabled. The default is enabled.
processingorder


Optional. Specifies the numeric position of this policy in the list of policies configured in NPS. Policies highest in the list (for example, at first position) are processed by NPS first.
