This property is read/write.
HRESULT put_HostID( long lHostID ); HRESULT get_HostID( long *plHostID );
' Data type: Long Property HostID( _ ByVal lHostID As long, _ ByVal plHostID As long _ ) As Long
A 32-bit integer that specifies the host ID of the server.
These property methods return S_OK if the call is successful; otherwise, they return an error code.
This property is read/write. It is initially set during setup, and its range of permissible values is from 2 through 32.
An array cannot contain more than 31 Forefront TMG computers. Each array member must have a unique host ID, which is assigned during installation. The host ID assigned to the first member of an array is 2. The host ID is used to identify the server for storage purposes, in VPN settings, and in Network Load Balancing configurations.
The value of this property should not be changed unless an alert is issued indicating that two or more array members have the same host ID. Such a conflict can occur if Forefront TMG is installed concurrently on multiple servers, if settings are not specified correctly in the .ini file for unattended Setup, and in some export and import scenarios.
