The first step in planning and documenting your array design is to identify your deployment goals. You can prioritize and combine your deployment goals so that you understand what planning is involved in each goal, and know who in your organization should be involved in the Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) deployment planning.

The following table lists the possible deployment goals and their design requirements.

Deployment goal Design requirements

Deploy multiple Forefront UAG servers

Design requirements include:

  1. Deciding where to place the Forefront UAG servers in your corporate topology.

  2. Planning domain requirements.

  3. Planning network and routing requirements.

  4. Planning array account requirements.

Load balance traffic between Forefront UAG array servers

Design requirements include:

  • Deciding whether to use a hardware load balancer or integrated Network Load Balancing (NLB).

Deploy multiple load-balanced Forefront UAG DirectAccess servers

Design requirements include:

  1. Deciding where to place the Forefront UAG DirectAccess servers in your corporate topology.

  2. Planning domain requirements.

  3. Planning how to configure any corporate firewalls to allow traffic to and from the Forefront UAG DirectAccess servers.

  4. Planning network and routing requirements.

  5. Planning DNS requirements.

  6. Planning a certificate infrastructure.

  7. Planning for load balancing. Forefront UAG DirectAccess arrays must be load balanced, with identical DirectAccess configuration settings.
