Preferred editions of Windows server 2008 for TMG 2010 deployment ?

    Question

  • Hi,

        It seems that Forefront TMG 2010 (RTM version) only supports "Windows Server 2008 SP2" or "Windows Server 2008 R2"

    What about TMG 2010 support for other 64-bit editions of Windows server 2008. ?  

    Is it possible to deploy TMG 2010 on other flavors of Windows 2008 like : Windows Server 2008 Datacenter , Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter,  Windows Server 2008 Standard and Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard?

    Also, Can anyone please tell us, the preferred editions of Windows server 2008 widely used for TMG 2010 deployment in an organization?

    Thanks,
    LK

  • TMG should work in all editions of 2008 SP2 & R2, except the server core.

    But our tests will be mainly on enterprise edition. If you have problem in any other editions , please let us know

  • Hi,

    Would you buy a DATA Center Edition for TMG !!!

    As either 2008 SP2 or R2, if you need to benefit of Direct Access, then you will need R2.
