  1. Excellent post

    Just some feedback for Sam. I would recommend mentioning that configuring the persistent routes as a prerequisite before installing TMG. Why? If the TMG servers are in the DMZ, they will not be able to talk to the AD servers inside the network because persistent routes have not been configured. As you know, if the servers can’t communicate with AD, they throw errors during the install.

    Just my two cents. Will provide more feedback as I go through the install.

    Once again, thanks for your article. It provides good guidance.



  2. Thanks Sam for the excellent write up on replacing default certs on srm. I am about to do this in a couple of weeks so I was looking for a step by step approach to the process using Microsoft Certificate Services.
