Installing Forefront TMG 2010 SP1
It is recommended that you install the service pack in the order described in Installing Forefront TMG SP1.
You should be aware of the following installation and deployment issues before and after installing Forefront TMG SP1:
- It is recommended that you complete the upgrade of all Enterprise Management Servers (master and replicas) and all the array members of an array before you configure the new SP1 features in the array.
- In a mixed environment, in which some array members have been upgraded to SP1 and others have not, the servers that are running the original release version of Forefront TMG 2010 (also known as RTM servers) continue to run with the same policy and do not receive policy updates. Note that RTM servers also:
- Process and log traffic as normal.
- Produce data for reports.
- Can be monitored from the Management console of an SP1 array member, an SP1 Enterprise Management Server, or via SP1 remote management.
- Do not show upgraded arrays or array members in the Management console.
- In most cases, you are not required to restart the computer after upgrade.
- If you are logging to a remote SQL database, you are required to migrate the log database to the new schema. For instructions, see “Upgrading a remote SQL database for Forefront TMG SP1” on the TechNet Wiki (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki).
- The build number for Forefront TMG SP1 is 7.0.8108.200. To verify that SP1 has been installed on a specific server, in the Forefront TMG Management console, click Help and select About Forefront Threat Management Gateway. The build number appears after Version.
