TMG 2010: Someone Find me Something High to Jump Off
Right, after careful consideration and several months of troubleshooting I have decided that Microsoft TMG 2010 is an abortion of of product and MS should have decided to kill the line before releasing it.
I have tried it on a 2008 R2 VM, 2008 R2 physical host, 2008 physical host and reset it up a few times. Disables all inspection rules, gave it more RAM, implemented extencive logging rules etc.
Stupidly I still can't pin down the problems 100% to the dirty TMG box as there is a switch or two in the way that are dodgey but it seems to be the prolem of TMG.
Symptoms, continuously dropping packets and choking out internet connections for single clients for up to 15 minutes despite killing off flood mitigation settings and installing every hotfix avalible.
Balmer needs to be hit with his own flying chair, removing features from products and releasing tripe like TMG. If I can finally 100% pin it down to TMG I am going to push MS to refund our Volume liscence of it.
