The Edge Planning Tool asks questions about your proposed or current edge server deployment. The tool uses your answers and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 best practices to generate the following reports:
- Settings that you can use to configure your certificates, DNS services, and firewalls
- Custom documentation for configuring your edge servers, reverse proxy, and next hop server
- A comparison of your answers to Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 best practices
After answering all the questions the tool gives you a series of reports.
Here’s an example of one report. This one documents all settings for FQDN for internal/external edge of A/V and Access Edge/Web Conf Edge Servers, DNS, Certificates and Firewall Rules. Very cool tool.
