Recently the Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) tool was updated and now includes a threshold file for Forefront UAG 2010. PAL is an essential utility that can make troubleshooting performance issues or capacity planning dramatically easier. I’ve written about using PAL on Forefront TMG 2010 in the past, and using PAL with Forefront UAG 2010 will be very similar. You can download the latest release of PAL at pal.codeplex.com.

This year I had the privilege of attending both TechEd North America and TechEd Europe, and presenting a session on Forefront TMG and UAG at both events. With the release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 due later this year, there were many sessions about the technologies included in the new client and server operating systems. When I wasn’t delivering my session or spending time with the Microsoft team in the learning center, I attended a number of sessions on security and networking. If you were unable to attend, or perhaps missed any of these sessions, they are now all available online on MSDN Channel 9. [ North America | Europe ] Here is a list of my favorite sessions:
IPv6 Bootcamp: Get Up to Speed Quickly
Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess: How to Quickly and Easily Deploy Your Next Generation Remote Access Solution
Overview of Hyper-V Networking in Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2012 NIC Teaming and Multichannel Solutions
Networking for Hybrid Cloud: BranchCache and Cross Premise Connectivity
Hyper-V Network Virtualization for Scalable Multi-Tenancy in Windows
Extending Enterprise Networks to Windows Azure using Windows Azure Virtual Networks
Demystifying Microsoft Forefront Edge Security Technologies: TMG and UAG
Ok, I have to admit that I’m somewhat biased about that last session on the list. 😉 However, Windows Server 2012 does have a lot of new networking features and capabilities that make it a compelling solution for remote access and hybrid cloud connectivity. Have a look at some of these sessions and start evaluating Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 today!

For those of you who were not able to attend Microsoft TechEd North America 2012 this year, the session I presented entitled “Demystifying Microsoft Forefront Edge Security Solutions: TMG and UAG” is now available online. Enjoy!
