  • Hello,

    These are some Technet articles about Exchange 2010 and TMG IPv6 support:

    For TMG removal, i've done this quite a few times, it's not that difficult depending on what your setup is.

    The first approach is to document all the rules and configurations you have configured and find a product that will best match your setup you have in place. Again, depending on your setup (single or array), it can go from a good enterprise baseline product to a more sophisticated one.

    I've been a big fan of ISA and TMG products since its beginning. In my opinion, Microsoft should have not dropped that product. It was really robust and stable.

  • And for answer your questions about IPv6 support on your TMG: yes you will have to get rid of your TMG, since Microsoft will drop TMG support on April 14, 2020, just about a little more than three years from now. So in a near future you will have to change your TMG any way, so the time is perfect.

    Also be aware of Exchange 2010 IPv6 limited support also, you may want to check my last post to measure the impacts and possible product upgrade.

    On thing for sure, you wont be able swtich entirely to IPv6 and get rid of IPv4 with Exchange 2010, since Transport Role is not supporting IPv6. But like you mentionned, you will have a dual stack network, so it sould not be an issue for you.

  • Hello,

    Agree with Gilles, here are two good blogs about IPV6 and TMG for your reference:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/netro/2010/11/24/arguments-against-disabling-ipv6/

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2013/07/17/life-in-a-post-tmg-world-is-it-as-scary-as-you-think/ 

    Hope it helps.
