I need help with the installation and setup of Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 Enterprise:


- Running 2008 R2:
- It is at the point of just being in a work group and has not moved forward till the next step is explained.  
- TMG 2010 is standing by for install.

I need help with install & setup, Help with the most pressing issue is the active directory vs. Work Group setup.

:::  My network consists of the 5 servers, 3 laptops (Wireless) and 2 desktops and then the Firewall (TMG 2010):

The 4 Servers are for use external clients ranging from email, web and Share Team.

Only one server is going to be used for internal server use. Which an active directory resides but at the moment the laptops and PC's are not using active directory but would like to utilize it soon.

From what I see I have to make the Firewall: TMG 2010  a member server of an already Active Directory Domain Controller in the same Forest etc.

Join the Firewall to the DC controller before I can go further,

Question is can the firewall be its own domain controller in its own domain and be added to another domain controller either in the same forest or a different forest with 2 way trusts setup.

Putting it into work group mode seems to have a many limitations or features that just want be available.

Help with this initial part will be very appreciated.  Please explain as much as possible.
