Forefront Unified Access Gateway 2010 Service Pack 2 is available for download

We are happy to announce that Service Pack 2 for Forefront UAG 2010 is now released.

UAG 2010 Service Pack 2 is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center, as an upgrade from UAG Service Pack 1 Update 1.

Here are some details about what is included in Service Pack 2 for UAG 2010:

  • Improved SharePoint 2010 support
    Forefront UAG 2010 SP2 enables users to authenticate to a trunk by using Microsoft Office Forms-Based Authentication (MSOFBA) when the trunk uses Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 for authentication.
  • Improved Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 support
    You can provide remote and partner employees with access to published applications that have AD FS 2.0 enabled.
    • AD FS Multi-Namespace support: Multi-namespace support with AD FS 2.0 enables you to use a single AD FS 2.0 server that has multiple Forefront UAG trunks when the FQDNs (the public host names) of the trunks are in different domains. For example, the FQDN of the first trunk is and the FQDN of the second trunk is Both trunks can be configured to perform AD FS authentication by using the same AD FS 2.0 server In this kind of deployment, the AD FS 2.0 server is published through one of the Forefront UAG trunks, or by an AD FS proxy that is parallel to Forefront UAG. 
    • Use the AD FS Proxy to publish the AD FS 2.0 Server: The AD FS proxy has many benefits compared to publishing the AD FS 2.0 server through Forefront UAG; including, support for Office365 authentication and mobile devices. 
    • Enable complex topologies: For example, by using Forefront UAG to publish a SharePoint website located in one site when the AD FS server is located in another site
  • Added client devices
    Forefront UAG 2010 SP2 enables users to connect with the following mobile devices:
    • Windows Phone 7.5
    • iOS 5.x on iPad and iPhone
    • Android 4.x on tablets and phones
  • Updated support for UAG’s endpoint detection capabilities
  • Fixes included in UAG SP2

    Do you know what they recommend for people that use UAG SP 1 with Update 2. It isn't mentioned anywhere.


  2. Ken Carvel says:


    This mentions "Use the AD FS Proxy to publish the AD FS 2.0 Server" instead of UAG.  Is the AD FS Proxy another feature or part of TMG?

  3. Ted Johnson says:

    Hi Ran,

    Just wondering if there will be updated trace files released for SP2?

  4. Simon Hill says:

    Does UAG SP2 include support for IE 10 on Windows 8?

  5. Win8er says:

    Still no Windows 8 support eh?  Sort it out please.

  6. the ADFS proxy "includes support for O365" I was under the impression that various MS sources state that UAG is a valid replacement for the ADFS proxy functionality… Now what's the correct statement now? O365 team says UAG: OK, UAG team says UAG NOT OK for O365 federation scenario's?

    Some clarification would be nice. This kind of scenario's is pretty import to know BEFORE you sell a solution to a customer

    I am facing strange issue. UAG Portal works intermittent, some time it works and some time it is not accessible. Earlier I had UAG SP1 then I installed UAG SP1 after then for some days it worked properly. But again I am facing same issue not sure what is the issue and how to troubleshoot. When Portal is not accessible I restart UAG services and do IIS reset. So for some time it works and then again it stops. what could be root cause.
