We are happy to announce Forefront UAG 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and the availability of its final release candidate. This service pack includes many enhancements to the product, designed to ease DirectAccess deployments and to enable secure collaboration scenarios using Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0.
Among the new features for DirectAccess:
The new AD FS 2.0 secure collaboration scenarios in SP1 enable the following:
SP1 is not only about features – it’s also about the user experience and the quality of the product. We addressed many customer requests and improved the stability and robustness of the system – not only for the new functionality but also for the existing scenarios. We also invested in completing the localization of the end-user experience. We are confident that you and your users will notice the improvement.
You can start experimenting with UAG 2010 SP1 RC right now by downloading the Release Candidate (RC). It includes all of the new features and is available both as an upgrade from a previous UAG 2010 releases, or as a clean install. You can find updated documentation that reflects all SP1 changes in our TechNet Library. We recommend you begin with the new installation guide.
We are eager to get your feedback and to assist with your deployments via our TechNet forum. Our team as well as our MVPs and partners monitor the forum. Please post any issues you might encounter. Compliments are also welcome ;-)
Over the next few weeks we will publish a series of blog posts to introduce SP1. Stay tuned!
Were is Form Based Authentication, then publishing Exchange 2010 Outlook Web App with SSO?????
Form-based authentication against the Client Access Server could not be maintained with Exchange co-existence scenarios, which we support with UAG SP1 (e.g. Exchange 2010 and 2007). It is advised to configure the CAS for Basic authentication and UAG for 401-Authentication. This will also ensure full transfer of all login attributes to OWA.
How about multiple circuit redundancy? Right now we are limited to using using UAG and DA with only one carrier.
Still no Full RDS session Single Signon?
Is there an ETA on when SP1 will be released.
Any idea on a release date for SP1? We don't do RC's....
