It is OK to install Windows 2008 R2 SP1 on TMG SP1 and UAG SP1

As I mentioned on my previous blog post, it is fine to install Windows 2008 R2 SP1 on machines running Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 and Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG).

Yesterday ISA/TMG team blogged about this subject making an official statement: “TMG 2010 SP1 and UAG 2010 SP1 are fully compliant with the new Windows service pack.

Although, there are some points you should observe and order you should follow when planning deploy Service Pack 1 on TMG 2010:

1. Enterprise Management Servers (master and replicas – only for TMG deployments).

2. Array managers.

3. Array members.

Check ISA/TMG team blog post for more info.

That´s it! Plan, test and update!! In this very order Winking smile

  2. Hi Kashif,

    by default, after you install ISA firewall it blocks all traffic. You must create an explicit access rule allowing needed traffic only.

    Hello Paulo,

    I’ve attempted to update 2 UAG servers with Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and after the update and subsequent reboot, I am unable to access these servers at all via RDP, and these are physical servers. So I’m now stuck having to drive 2 hours to the data center to figure out what is broken. I’m looking for a remote way to fix this but otherwise, I would say there is something broken in the process.

    PS 99% of my management of these servers is via remote access so I will not be putting SP1 on
    anything else soon!

    Have you a fix for this by chance?
