Vacation is always good, isn’t it? I was on vacation in June and couldn’t write too much but now I’m back and fully charged for another TMG semester. Last week I was delivering a TMG workshop for Microsoft Premier Customers and some interesting questions appeared during those three days. Among all those questions there were two that I would like to share it here:

1) Can I use ISP-Redundancy to send HTTP through one link and SMTP through another?

No, you can’t. This is unsupported and documented here.

2) Can I install TMG Firewall on EMS?

No, you can’t. This is also part of the unsupported document that you can find here.

It is very important to read this unsupported document before make decisions on your environment. Matter of fact one of the slides that I presented during this workshop last week says:

If you want to be on the safe side never skip phases and during the planning phase make sure to read the unsupported document to see if there is any scenario that might affect your supportability state.

Have a great TMG deployment.
