•      Exchange 2007
•      Exchange 2010
•      SCCM 2007
•      SCOM 2007
•      SQL 2005
•      SQL 2008

And a lot more.

Now I got a request from management to make all windows firewall on in all servers, I should enable windows firewall using GPO in DC's.

I need your help to do this tasks, now I know which rules or ports i have to open for each server? What I have to allow so the work will not stop?

Please help

best approach for this is to test the effect of enabling firewall in a test environment or it will have a significant impact on your servers. Most of the applications will stop communicating if you do not exclude correct ports.

AND, not all installed applications follow default use of ports - your organisation could have its own standards that override product defaults
