Installing Forefront Threat Management Gateway (New ISA) in my System Center Operations Manager Lab


(Simple high-level step-by-step for the admin that does not require screenshots. The process below is probably useful for building a lab, production deployments would require little more planning.)

Basic Info

TMG is basically an Outbound Proxy.

UAG is basically an Inbound Proxy.

TMG consists of 3 roles:

  • TMG Server (x64)
  • Enterprise Management Server (x64) – i.e. The old Configuration Storage Server (CSS)
  • Management Console (x86/x64)

E-mail protection must be installed separately. It is not installed by default!
