Services

The Services tab shows the names, status, and server uptime of a number of services running on the Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway firewall. Not all of the services are displayed and managed from this tab. Other services can be managed in Computer Management, or from a command prompt. The following table summarizes the services.

Note the following when starting and stopping services on the Services tab:

  • When you stop the Microsoft Firewall service (fwsrv), the information in the cache is not deleted. However, when you restart the service, several seconds may pass before the cache is fully enabled and functional. If the service failed, Forefront TMG will restore the information in the cache. This will take some time, and performance may not be optimal until the cache is eventually restored.
  • If the Microsoft Forefront TMG Job Scheduler service is stopped, you cannot run scheduled content download jobs.
  • If you configure logging to use SQL Server Express logging, when you stop the Microsoft Data Engine service, the Routing and Remote Access and Firewall services are also stopped.
  • When VPN client access is enabled, or when you create a site-to-site network to represent a remote VPN site, the Routing and Remote Access service is displayed.
