    Hello, thank you for the setup guide. But a question..

    Can Exchange Forefront 2010 and Exchange server 2007 be installed on two separate machines?


  5. Schaefer says:

    Do you have a “how to” on installing TMG and Exchange 2010 Edge on separate servers.

    I am looking to keep the servers separate because TMG will be a member of the domain and Edge will not be a member.

    Thank your help…
