Drawback of having my TMG cluster connected to the domain.


I have just build a TMG cluster, I will be moving it into our DMZ but was wondering if I should connect it to the domain or not. Any reason why I should NOT connect my TMG setup to the domain?

Mostly I want to know about the security reasons behind why not to do it.

Best practice is to connect it to the domain everytime

Thanks for that. Is there any documentation outlining this at all that I can look at and show to the powers-that-be?

I tried to look but can't find anything.
There was an article by one of the Microsoft guys regarding why ISA server should be connected to the domain. In the end, there are no security issues and you can assign domain user level access.
Question has a verified solution.
