Disable Windows Server 2008’s PnP-X and Port Sharing services via Group Policy

When a new operating system becomes available, one of the first things I look at is what is new on the basic components of the server; for example, I did this for scheduled tasks on Windows Server 2008 (including R2). One area that I look at most carefully is the Windows Services inventory. Two services that caught my eye in Windows Server 2008 are the PnP-X IP Bus Enumerator and Net.TCP Port Sharing services.

Read my take on these two Windows Services at the Servers and Storage blog at TechRepublic.
