Edge Transport Server and Forefront Protection for Exchange on top of TMG RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I´ve a TMG 2010 as a domain member for firewall and VPN using NAT. I´ve no DMZ.

    I´ve read that there are issues on instaling Edge Transport on domain members and that to install these 3 prodcts TMG 2010 should be the last one installed.

    My question is :

    Can I install Edge Transport Server and Forefront Protection for Exchange on this topology (on top of TMG)? Do you recomend it?

    Thank you

  • It's possible to install Edge Transport in your domain member server. It's also supported - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb851507(EXCHG.80).aspx. But it's recomended to install TMG as a last app to make integration of management all those 3 products possible.

    But such a configuration could be difficult to configure.

  • hello

    you should not install  Edge Role on Domain member as it is meant for perimeter network,

    actually edge server does not need any authentication from Active directory.

    so MS recommends you to install it on standalone server because this is by design Edge role is not for AD object.
