Virtualize your ISA or Forefront TMG servers

Rate:  

About This Video

In the past, ISA has had very limited or no support on Microsoft's virtualization platform.  Now, ISA and Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) is supported .  I met up with Jim Harrison to get some guidance on what you need to think about when you virtualize your ISA/TMG servers.  We quickly dive into a whiteboard session on the various ways you can configure Hyper-V / virtual server to work with ISA/TMG and dig into the advantages and disadvantages of each network configuration such as:

  • Performance
  • Management
  • Administration
  • Security

Some other things we talk about:

  • [15:12] Why placing TMG on the parent is a bad idea and how you should configure the parent partition
  • Configuration options of the actual ISA/TMG server
  • [22:11] Failover, Clustering, and Quick Migration with ISA / TMG in a virtual environment
  • [24:32] Configuration changes you should make for any host which faces the Internet

View the  security considerations for virtualized ISA / TMG deployments guide / whitepaper Jim wrote.

See  KB article 957006 which states ISA (and other) products are officially supported on Hyper-V.
