Windows Firewall

I would like to know how to appropriately adjust the Windows Firewall when running a third party firewall or when you have application servers that do not want any local firewall running.

I noticed that on some machines the firewall is just simply turned off and on others the service has been disabled.

Please see attached screenshots.

I would like to know which is the correct way and how this affects Network Location Services.

This all started because I have a couple of domain attached servers that have a connection of Network 2 (private) instead of reporting our domain network like it should.

I thought possibly the firewall configuration could be the culprit.

I our environment we have multiple third party firewalls and we keep our desktop and server local firewall disabled.
As we do not have to make changes on each local system if we need to make any changes on the firewall front and we still stay secured.

Do you actually disable the service? Or are you just turning the firewall off on home, work, and public?
