An enterprise array is an array managed by an Enterprise Management Server (EMS). This topic describes how to join a Forefront TMG server to an enterprise array.
- When joining a server to an enterprise array, the existing configuration of the standalone server is overwritten.
- Before joining a server to an enterprise array, you should update the Intrusion Prevention System signature definitions on the server; otherwise, the signatures will not be updated on that server until the scheduled update for the array.
To join an enterprise array
In the Forefront TMG Management console, click the server name node.
On the Tasks tab, click Join Array.
On the Join Membership Type page, click Join an array managed by an EMS server.
On the Enterprise Management Server Details page, enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the EMS server, and then click the user account form used to connect to the server.
On the Join EMS Managed Array page, select whether to join an existing EMS managed array, or to create a new EMS managed array.
If you selected to create a new EMS managed array, on the Create New Array page, enter the details of the new array.
