Migration from ISA server 2006 to TMG 2010

For migration from ISA server 2006 to TMG 2010 one very usefull document is http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd440994.aspx

Still we have to make sure we are doing couple of things right e.g. when we install TMG 2010 following the wizards we might end up creating a web access policy rule. This is because wizards let admin to create a web access rule to allow web access through TMG just after the TMG installation.

 After creating that rule if we then try to do server level import of the ISA configuration which we exported earlier from our ISA server 2006. This import would fail.

 So if we have planned to migrate from ISA server 2006 to TMG 2010. Then we should not create the web access rule just after the installaton using the intitial configuration wizard. We need to make sure that TMG is without any rules and is plain vanilla, before Importing the ISA server configuration on it.

    yes they are compatible and you can import configuration from ISA 2006 and put it on TMG 2010.

    For complete migration: Make sure you are doing a clean install of TMG2010 and not creating any initial rules at the time of TMG2010 installation as it allows you to create initial web access rules as initial configuration wizard.

    No, TMG reporting works in a very different way,which is combination of MSDE components and ISARS components which is not present on ISA 2006

    you are planning to migrate from ISA 2006 to TMG or is it from ISA 2004 to TMG? for both you should refer to this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd440994.aspx

    TMG server should be installed on a 64 bit windows 2008 server,it could be on a physical or virtual server.
