vuvur -> Installing TMG Enterprise Array in a workgroup (30.Jun.2011 6:04:32 AM)

Hi everybody,
it looks like all the information currently present is on TMG server as a domain member...Our internal restrictions are to have TMG servers in a workgroup (due to their location). So could you please answer my questions:
(1) is it possible to install TMG EE for workgroup members (was not the case previously for ISA 2004-2006)?
(2) Should I install EMS array or stand-alone array, or it has nothing to do with domain membership?
(3) What are the peculiarities here (should I use any specific account to connect to DB, should I use certificates for intra-server authentication etc)
(4) are there any limitations being a workgroup member compared to domain member for array's management?
(5) is there any information published on the topic on (I've searched for it with no success)

Many thanks in advance...
