Edge transport and TMG best practice NLB

Not open for further replies.


What is the general opinion on setup for Edge and TMG. Is it better to have 2 Edge transport servers with two mx records in our DNS or two Edge Transport servers connected via NLB and one mx record in our DNS? Along with that is TMG as a reverse proxy work well with 2 TMG servers connected via NLB? Thanks for your help.

In addition to your options, you can now have TMG and Edge 2010 on the same server.

I don't think I'd deploy NLB, though I'd consider hardware load balancing. I don't even know if it's supported with TMG. If you put TMG in front of Edge (on separate servers) you'd want to use a server farm instead of NLB for the Edge servers, I think.
