ISA and TMG
As simple of a question as any, is it worth upgrading ISA 2006 to TMG 2010?
Any beneficial features i would gain by doing so?
I feel like i want to do it as it's one of only two remaining servers on 2003, but i probably shouldn't if it doesn't give me any benefit.
Erm to be honest for most users you wot get allot out of it. The reason I migrated was to get shut of sever 2003.
Same reason i want to migrate then :p
Seems a good enough reason in my head but as i wasn't the one who originally setup ISA I'm a bit reluctant in case i break it. The microsoft guide for migrating looks relatively straight forwards and simple though so i might give it a go and hope for the best....i guess at the very worst i can just fall back to my ISA install. Just to confirm, even though i gather this from the microsoft blog.... Firewall client for ISA 2006 works with TMG correct?
Unless your agreement covers some of the extra features or you use SIP you are unlikely to notice the difference. It does have email/ull/malware filtering but these are by subscription.
If you are running it on 2008r2 then make sure you install SP1 and the post SP1 feature pack otherwise it can be a bit scruffy.
Not sure about the firewall client but I think so, the new one is just an MSI anyhow so is trivial to deploy over the top as an upgrade.
Yes it will work but I personally prefer the TMG Firewall client because it support an AD marker and HTTPS inspection notification.
