This week Microsoft released a major update of Forefront TMG 2010 and many TMG Admins are very excited with the new features that were announced in the Forefront TMG team blog, such as the support for Kerberos authentication in an array scenario, the improved error pages and the new site activity report. These are already three reasons to apply SP2 on your TMG, but instead of only adding two other features I’m going to give you five more reasons to apply this update. Here are those:
1. Forefront TMG 2010 SP2 makes TMG startup operation ten times faster.
2. Do you remember KB2498831? No need to run that script anymore, with TMG 2010 SP2 a new option was added in the screen to allow you to do that as shown below:
3. Performance improved for cloud migration.
4. Improvement in the E-Mail Protection feature
5. Account lockout enhancements for FBA.
That’s it…go grab TMG 2010 SP2 and remember: in order to apply TMG 2010 SP2 you need TMG 2010 SP1 + Update 1.
Is there an english translation of your TechEd Brazil talk?
No, but I'm planning to do it, just don't have an ETA yet.
Thanks for your visit.
Any word on the time it take a rule to go live. I am reffering to when you click "apply" and th econfiguration status going green.
This may vary according to your configuration, machine setup, CSS location, etc. There are many elements involved during the sync (apply --- change -- commit changes --- take effect) that are not only TMG related. That's why I don't think we have a general "expected" time for that.
There are few known issues after applying TMG 2010 Sp2 ,worst error what I have seen is that Users are unable to Receive External Email..see below
Users are unable to Receive External Emails and if you look at Queue monitor on Edge server you would see following error
Exchange EDGE server SMTP communication with the HUB server will fail with “Unrecognized command” error.
