configuration to Publish Exchange through TMG Back-end - Front-end method

 Can you believe it I finally got this done! This process can be used for Exchange 2007 or 2010.



This is a basic walkthrough on getting OWA published through a TMG Front-end\Back-end scenario.
Well lets get started!
First we have to establish the basic configuration
The lab will be configured as shown

First Obviously we need physical connectivity as defined.

  • 2 TMG servers with 2 NICs each
  • Each with a NIC on the DMZ network.
  • The Frontend connected to the ISP
  • The Backend connected to the LAN

Backend server

  1. Configure NICs
    1. DMZ NIC = IP: 192.168.1.2/24, Gateway: 192.168.1.1, , DNS: Null
    2. Inter NIC = IP: 192.168.2.1/24 Gateway: Null, DNS: 192.168.2.10 (Internal Domain DNS)

  2. Join to domain
  3. Install TMG
  4. Configuration
    1. Getting Started Wizard
    2. Configure Network Settings
      1. Next
      2. Next
      3. Important: Choose Private at the Bottom so the BE can route.
      4. Finish

    3. Configure System Settings
      1. I make sure mine is connected to the domain (just makes permissions easier)

    4. Define Deployment options
      1. This is a preference but for this Lab I disable all updates or NIS updates

    5. Remote Access Wizard (again preference But I limit config as this is a publishing lab not client access)
      1. This one can make troubleshooting difficult if configured any other way

    6. Network Rule Creation
      1. Edit the Internal to Perimeter Rule

    7. Firewall Rule Creation





Front-end server

  1. Configure NICs
    1. DMZ NIC = IP: 192.168.1.1/24, Gateway: 192.168.1.1, , DNS: 192.168.2.10 (Internal Domain DNS)
    2. Inter NIC = IP: ISP assigned Gateway: ISP assigned, DNS: null

  2. Install TMG
  3. Configuration
    1. Getting Started Wizard
    2. Configure Network Settings
      1. Next
      2. Be sure to add the additional route for the LAN network behind the back-end server.
        This also adds the internal LAN network to the Internal Network object(networking\networks), and adds a static route for the Internal network as well (Networking\routing tab)
      3. In my case I have a dynamic IP in my lab, but this would be your ISP provided IP
      4. At this point you should have routing connectivity to the domain.

    3. Configure System Settings
      1. I make sure mine is connected to the domain (just makes permissions easier)

        You can join the domain here

    4. Define Deployment options
      1. This is a preference but for this Lab I disable all updates or NIS updates

    5. Remote Access Wizard (again preference But I limit config as this is a publishing lab not client access)
      1. This one can make troubleshooting difficult if configured any other way

    6. Publishing Rules (Same as previous Posts, sample here see other posts for more details)
      1. This is a basic auth listener that will work for OWA\EAS\OLA but doesn’t include forms
      2. Make sure this Name is accessible from the FE server (the name also needs to be on the trusted certificate on the exchange server)
      3. This may change based on your scenario
      4. Finish

    7. Apply Changes and Test!!!

ما هى ال FSMO Roles

  بأختصار ال FSMO Roles هى اختصار ل Flexible Single Operation Master و هى عباره عن 5 Roles فى ال Active Directory و هما بينقسموا لقسمين A - Forest Roles 1- Schema Master Role و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال schema و بيكون فى Schema Master Role واحد فى ال Forest بيكون موجود على Domain Controller و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Schema Snap in in MMC بس بعد ما يتعمل Schema Register بواسطه الامر التالى من ال Cmd regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll 2-Domin Naming Master و هى ال Role المسئوله عن تسميه ال Domains و بتتأكد ان مفيش 2 Domain ليهم نفس الاسم فى ال Forest و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Domains & Trusts B- Domain Roles 1-PDC Emulator و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال Password change فى ال domain و بتتحكم فى ال time synchronization و هى تعتبر المكان الافتراضى لل GPO's و هى تعتبر Domain Role مش زى الاتنين الاولانيين و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active directory Users & Computers عن طريق عمل كليك يمين على اسم الدومين و نختار operations master فى تاب ال PDC Emu

Question كيفية عمل share للـ outlook conntact لكل الـ Domain Users

  الحل بسيط جدا عايز الكونتاكت تتحدث دايما بحيث انك لما تضيف يوزر جديد يسمع في الكونتاكت اول حاجه بتدخل علي in office 2003 tools --- email account ---- add address book --- internet directory service (LDAP) type your server name then login info . mark this server require me to logon type any user on active directory and its password then save and close outlook and open it again now you will find all your active directory users in address book

Recreating a missing VMFS datastore partition in VMware vSphere 5.x and 6.x

    Symptoms A datastore has become inaccessible. A VMFS partition table is missing.   Purpose The partition table is required only during a rescan. This means that the datastore may become inaccessible on a host during a rescan if the VMFS partition was deleted after the last rescan. The partition table is physically located on the LUN, so all vSphere hosts that have access to this LUN can see the change has taken place. However, only the hosts that do a rescan will be affected.   This article provides information on: Determining whether this is the same problem Resolving the problem   Cause This issue occurs because the VMFS partition can be deleted by deleting the datastore from the vSphere Client. This is prevented by the software, if the datastore is in use. It can also happen if a physical server has access to the LUN on the SAN and does an install, for example.   Resolution To resolve this issue: Run the  partedUtil  command on the host with the issues and verify if your output
