Exchange 2010 Edge role on FTMG, to decom FTMG
Posted on 2014-03-03
We have an Edge transport role enabled on the FTMG servers, and the FTMG servers are going to be decommissioned and Checkpoint firewalls to take over. The Checkpoint firewalls will take the FTMG IP addresses. What I need advise on is,
- Can we create an Edge Transport server role in a virtualised environment?
- Can we still use the same physical servers with the FTMG removed and configure with new IP addresses?
2 X MBX servers
2 X HT servers
2 X CAS servers
2 X FTMG servers with Edge role enabled.
Please advise as I do no have much knowledge about the Edge transport role, only that it routes Internet emails and protects the organization from viruses.
