Unidentified networks in Windows Server 2012 forced to be Private

This article describes how we can force a network connection from Microsoft Windows "Network and Sharing Center" that is classified as an “Unidentified Network” to a private network e.g. to solve issues with the firewall rules. The problem is that Windows cannot classify the type of network, often due to there being no default gateway or DNS specified on local network connections. The default solution would be to make it public cause this offers the most restrictive level of network access. In order to have a permanent solution which will work for any “Unidentified Network” to be classified as private network rather than public network, we need to modify the defaults using the local security policy of the machine. Please notice that this may results in a possible security risk. The following solution works for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server [...]

Get-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts Ensure that the Windows Firewall has inbound Windows Remote Management (HTTP-In) enabled for the relevant network connection. On the Server that is running Server Manager, add the Workgroup server name to the TrustedHosts list (this is a requirement of NTLM authentication). To add  additional entries to the list of trusted hosts use the -Concatenate parameter. Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value "SERVER1,SERVER1.local" –Force Now we can Start the Server Manager and click on [...]
