This topic explains how to export Edge Subscription files from a Forefront TMG server. When generated via the Forefront TMG Management console, Edge Subscription files contain information about all the Edge Transport servers installed in the Forefront TMG array. When the files are imported on the appropriate Hub Transport server, all the Forefront TMG servers in the array are subscribed to the Edge Subscription.

After you perform this procedure, you must import the Edge Subscription file to the computer that has the Hub Transport server role installed within 24 hours.

Before you begin

To perform the following procedure, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

Security Note:
Edge Subscription files are written in clear text. You must protect these files throughout the subscription process. After the Edge Subscription files are imported to a Hub Transport server, you should immediately delete them from the Edge Transport server, the Hub Transport server, and any removable media.

To create an Edge Subscription file

  1. In the Forefront TMG Management console, in the tree, click the E-Mail Policy node.

  2. In the details pane, click the E-Mail Policy tab.

  3. In the Tasks tab, click Generate Edge Subscription Files.

  4. In the Browse for Folder window, browse to the location where you want to store the Edge Subscription files, and click OK.
