SBS 2008 Set Up Last Step – Networking Batch File

The following four networking settings get flagged consistently in the SBS 2008 Best Practices Analyzer on our SBS 2008 installs lately:


  • Add-On Congestion Control Provider
  • Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level
  • Receive-Side Scaling State
  • Task Offload

To fix the above, copy and paste the following commands into Notepad, clean up any blog inserted format characters, and save as a batch file. Run the batch file near the end of the SBS 2008 OS configuration found in our SBS 2008 Setup Guide.

netsh int tcp set global congestion=none

netsh int tcp set global autotuning=disabled

netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled

netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled
