Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Management Console

Hi all,

I have just installed MS Forefront Protection for Exchange 2010 onto each of our Exchange 2010 EDGE servers.
I noticed that the settings between them are individual.

I have now found that there is a console to manage both of these using a single configuration.

If I had 2 Edge servers in the DMZ, where am I meant to install this console to manage the FPS and keep the settings the same?

Do I need to deploy another server in the DMZ and install that separately?
Has anyone used it before?

Just looking for suggestions...

Thanks,
Mark

The edge and fpe settings are per server so if you had two edge the config is to be done twice

So, this "management console", where I can 'add servers' to manage, is only built to manage a single edge?

How does this make it any better than managing it on the edge server?

It's forefront protection for Exchange 2010.

As part of Exchange 2010, the last option on the menu when you put the CD in. Install Forefront Protection for Exchange 2010.

I have installed this on each edge, the management console for this only came out recently it seems.

However, I'm a bit confused where on our network (edge or private) I'm meant to install this tool.

Yes I know it is FPE for Exchange and it can be installed on edge however you talked about one console to manage both what console are you talking about ?

the FPE should be installed on the edge for sure, it can also be install on the internal servers if you are worried about an internal virus outbreak

This is the management console for these edge servers.

Unless it's only built to manage servers who run this on their Internal HUB Transport servers?

Okie doke.

Are there scripts you know of, to perhaps export the config from forefront on the edge? I can then import onto the 2nd edge...

you can easily export the config of the Edge but for forefront I am afraid it has to be done manually
