Installing Forefront TMG on local server


  • Hi, I installed Forefront TMG on my Windows Server. The configuration steps (when I click "Connect"), ask me to specify a storage server (I believe this is what it was). However, I need to use a remote server. As I am on a single server which acts as everything (AD, etc) and then have VMs for things like MOSS which are single server, is there a way I can install TMG on the same local server? Thanks

  • Hi,

    Forefront TMG installs by default all components on the local server when you install Forefront TMG Standard (except the selection of the TMG MMC). I think you made a mistake during the installation. To see how Forefront TMG is installed on a local server with all roles, read: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc441440.aspx

  • I'm actually using Enterprise. It will only let me install one of the 3 different installation modes because I'm installing on a domain controller. This may be part of the problem. I will try the Standard Edition.

  • Hi,

    installing Forefront TMG on a Domain Controller is not supported. You have to install the EMS and the TMG nodes on a member server
