If you need control firewall settings on domain enviroment you can make some changes on Group Policy.

To disable Windows Firewall in a domain environment, the Group Policy setting you would use is located in Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Domain Profile. The setting is called Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections. If you disable this policy setting, Windows Firewall does not run and it cannot be started.

TIP: for servers make sure they are stored on SERVERS container in AD.
