Following Setup, the Getting Started Wizard runs automatically the first time you open the Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) Management console. You must complete the wizard before proceeding with Forefront UAG configuration. The Getting Started Wizard helps you to set up the network adapter settings required for your network infrastructure, and configure Microsoft update settings. Optionally, you can also use the wizard to gather multiple Forefront UAG servers into a server array.

Configuring network and server settings

To configure your network and server settings

  1. In the Getting Started Wizard, click Configure Network Settings to start the Network Configuration Wizard.

  2. On the Define Network Adapter Settings page, in the Adapter name list do the following:

    • To configure the adapter connected to the external network, click the External column. On the Define External Network IP Address Range page, verify the address ranges associated with the internal network adapter. You can add, edit, or remove ranges, as required. Note that it is not recommended to configure DNS on the external adapter.

    • To configure the adapter connected to the internal network, click the Internal column. Adapter settings are displayed in the Adapter properties list. On the Define Internal Network IP Address Range page, verify the address ranges associated with the internal network adapter. You can add, edit, or remove ranges, as required.

    After running the Getting Started Wizard, if you modify any internal or external IP addresses on the Forefront UAG server, in the Forefront UAG Management console, on the Admin menu, click Reload Configuration to apply the changes.
    If the default gateway is moved from the internal network adapter to the external network adapter while in the Network Configuration Wizard (also part of the Getting Started Wizard), restart the wizard so the change is incorporated into the wizard configuration.
  3. After running the Network Configuration Wizard, click Define Server Topology to open the Server Management Wizard. On the Select Configuration page, do the following:

    • If you are running Forefront UAG on a single server, click Single server.

    • If you want to join this server to an array of Forefront UAG servers, click Array member. The Array Management Wizard opens, which enables you to join the server to an array, and manage other array settings. For help on running this wizard, see Implementing an array and load balancing design. For more information about planning an array design, read the Array planning guide.

  4. After running the Network Configuration Wizard, click Join Microsoft Update to open the Server Configuration Wizard. On the Use Microsoft Update for Forefront UAG page, do the following:

    • Click Use Microsoft Update when I check for updates if your corporate update policy uses Microsoft Updates. Note that an Internet connection is required both to opt in for updates and receive them. Forefront UAG updates will only be available after the RTM release.

    • Select I don’t want to use Microsoft Update to opt out. Selecting this setting might take a couple of minutes to apply.

  5. If you are installing Forefront UAG with SP1, on the Customer Experience Improvement Program page of the wizard, do the following:

    • Click Yes, I am willing to participate anonymously in the Customer Experience Improvement program if you want to allow Forefront UAG to information anonymously to Microsoft about your hardware and how you use Forefront UAG.

    • Click No, I do not want to participate if you do not want to participate in the program.

Following installation, you can open the Getting Started Wizard from the Admin menu of the Forefront UAG Management console.
Ensure that you define the internal and external network adapters using the Getting Started Wizard. If you do not define the adapters using the wizard, both the internal and external adapter addresses will be included in the internal network defined in Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG). Forefront TMG is installed automatically during Setup.
