So you’ve gone through our excellent Test Lab Guides (which you can find at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/test-lab-guides.aspx) and you’ve read the UAG DirectAccess design guide (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee406191.aspx) and the UAG DirectAccess deployment guide (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd857320.aspx). You’ve got the critical hands-on and the key background information after going through those.

What next?

What would be really handy is high level plan of the steps you need to go through as you roll out your pilot project. This is where Jason Jones, Forefront MVP, comes in. He’s published a very handy pair of documents that will really help you clarify your plan.
