Installing IAG with Service Pack 2 as a virtual machine

Updated: February 10, 2010

Applies To: Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG)

Whale Communications Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 virtual machine includes the Windows Server® 2003 R2 Standard Edition operating system, IAG 2007 SP2, and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006 SP1, which acts as a network firewall.

ISA Server complements secure application access with the ability to terminate Internet Protocol security (IPsec) traffic and provide full content inspection in order to combat undesirable software, such as spyware and malware threats.

ISA Server is used as a network firewall only; none of the other ISA Server features are implemented in this setup. Unless specifically instructed to, you should not change any of the default ISA Server settings.

This section provides installation instructions for both the volume license software and the trial software version of the IAG virtual machine, including the following:

Before you begin

Before you begin, note the following:

  • Make sure that the computer on which you are installing the IAG virtual machine is enabled for virtualization in BIOS.

  • Review the Hyper-V™ requirements at Windows Server 2008 Virtualization with Hyper-V: FAQ (

  • If you are installing a trial version of the IAG virtual machine, the trial expiration date of the copy that you install is noted on the end user license agreement page that is displayed during the installation. After the installation, you are reminded periodically of the number of days that are remaining in the evaluation period. Messages are logged to the Application Event log, and you also receive notification messages when you log on to the computer. If you wish to migrate the IAG configuration settings into a volume license installation of the virtual machine, make sure to back up the configuration before the trial version expires. For details, see Backing up and restoring the IAG configuration.
