I am curious about using dns round robin to balance Tmg client use. If you have an array set up, can you, instead of identifing a single TMG server to handle TMG client requests, in the forefront client configuration box, replace the server name with a dns round robin name that goes to all the TMG servers? For the purposes of this question, assume NLB and CARP are not options.

Thanks
Patrick

Hai Patrick,

That is indeed a good option to "balance" the TMG FWclient load. Keep a TTL of 2..3 minutes per DNS entry.  Add the RRDNS name in the "Firewall client" tab on the (internal) Network in TMG (You can still use the NLB address of your array to initialize your TMG client.)

Hi,

may I ask why NLB is not an option?

In this NLB is not an option because our network infra-structure is handled by another group and they nixed the idea.

Hi,

well, all I can say is that NLB is the best option. :)
