  • Hi,

    I checked this with Microsoft last weekand it is fully supported to run both UAG and TMG SP1 on server 2008 R2 with SP1.

    If you are running NLB on your TMG's or UAG's you will need to reboot the machines twice doing the upgrade.

  • Hi,

    Currently I am using Windows Server 2003 with ISA installed. The machine is configured as DC with DNS and DHCP installed. 2 NIC's one connected to the internal LAN and the other one connected to ADSL Modem. Clients are connected and having Internet Access as per the policies.

    NOW,

    My company wants to install Windows Server 2008 R2 and do the job as mentioned above.

    Does anyone have any ideas what I should do.

    Regards

    Arshad

  • Hi Arshad,

     

    I have made a TMG deployment... yesterday :) but I did not migrated from ISA. Which is probably your goal.

    Some guidelines/info about migrating from ISA to TMG:

    A good deployment guide for TMG can be found here:

    More interesint info:

    I hope this helps you.

    TMG Firewall policies work very simmilar as ISA. If this post helps you, please Vote as Helpful or Mark as an Answer.
