Consider a scenario where TMG Admin reinstalled TMG Enterprise Edition after a hardware failure and decided to rejoin the array member to the EMS. However, when TMG Admin tried to rejoin it, the following error occurred:

"This post showed how TMG admins need to be aware that EMS configuration will try to enforce the settings, in this particular scenario for a logging path that didn't exist in the joining array member.
