This topic is designed to help you understand the planning requirements for a Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) file design, as follows:
Planning domain requirements
Planning for file access includes the following domain requirements:
- To provide remote access to file structures and shares, both
Forefront UAG and File Access servers must be members of the same
domain in which users are located, or in a trusted domain.
- To allow remote access to Windows file servers, Forefront UAG
must be either a member of the domain to which the file servers
belong, or a member of a domain which has a trust relationship with
the file server domain.
- You can create a new domain with the Forefront UAG server as
the domain controller, or join an existing domain.
Planning Novell NetWare server access
To allow access to Novell NetWare servers, the following is required:
- To share Novell NetWare Server resources
through the File Access application, you must install a Novell
client on the Forefront UAG server.
