After installing TMG Beta 1 in Hyper-V RC1, I've decided to try a simple ISA 2006 Firewall lab in Hyper-V RC1.
I must say that Hyper-V seems pretty damn fast and my simple ISA lab did not encounter any major issues.
I've been using for a long time VMware products, but I'm starting to be convinced/seduced by the new Hyper-V.
Having an ISA lab on my laptop is quite important, because I can test various settings, topologies and I can prepare a configuration file for a production environment.
With Jim Harrison's post on my mind I've proceeded:
Simple lab, two VMs:
- a VM on which to install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 x32 Enterprise Edition for the DC of this lab.
- a VM on which to install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 x32 Standard Edition for the ISA 2006 Firewall.
