I’ve being so busy lately that I couldn’t really stop to write some posts that I have on hold, waiting for me to complete it. Me and Tom Shinder are also very busy working on a tight schedule for a new MSPress book (details will be revealed soon) and writing here is getting very challenging, but I will come back soon. That being said, today I would like to highlight some of my friend’s post in the Edge (ISA/TMG/IAG/UAG) Community, here are some good new posts:

Richard Hicks explains in more details how TMG Enterprise Array works and how to manage it:

Jason Jones explains how to generate a certificate to be used in TMG HTTPS Inspection. Although this one is not new (since it was published in January) but it’s very good:

Deb Shinder goes over the EMail Protection configuration on TMG on this series of very good articles:

I don’t know if you notice but TMG Best Practices Analyzer is out there already and Marc Grote goes over the core features of the new TMG BPA:

Last but not least, did you know that Microsoft released a hotfix update package for Forefront TMG 2010 last January? Yep, it did, review http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979578 for more information and notice that this package contains 3 updates:

  • 978092 FIX: You cannot import an XML file that was exported from an enterprise that includes a Forefront TMG 2010 Standard Edition-based server
  • 979249 FIX: You cannot enable the malware inspection for an access rule in Forefront TMG 2010 EMS
  • 979250 FIX: You cannot add an e-mail address that contains special characters to the list of block senders in Forefront TMG 2010

I would like to say a special thanks to Miha Pihler for discovering and bring to our attention the bug that was fixed on 979250.
