    Question Validating Windows Configuration and Validating Configuration of Windows

    Hi,

    I have recently installed and configured a Windows Server 2012 R2, now need to write some document on it.

    Below is the subject about validating the configuration:

    1). Validating Windows Server 2012 R2 Configuration
    2). Validating the Configuration of Windows Server 2012 R2
    3). Validating Configuration of Windows Server 2012 R2

    In my opinion, all the above three subjects are acceptable, but not certain, please help to check if any problem/syntax error on that. If found one is wrong, please also help to explain Why.

    Thanks.

    I would use 'Validation of the configuration of Windows Server 2012 R2', but I am not a teacher.

    (1) and (2) are acceptable but it is better to put"configuration", the keyword, in front. And you need "the" before it.

    Horsefeathers.

    The OP is right. All three are acceptable, equivalent and common in technical usage. There is nothing to choose among them.

    Are you a teacher?

    fenglish, your clicking on the 'Thank' button has already obviated the need for a new post saying 'Thank you'; such is one of the many unwritten rules on this forum.

    tedmc, once again, you are advised not to make statements like the above without qualifying them with in my opinion.

    Validating Configuration of Windows Server 2012 R2
    May I know why "the" is not required before "Configuration"?
    OP has capitlalized configuration but I don't think it is a proper noun. It is similar to "settings", another common noun.

    The phrase appears to be a title.
