O Ross Smith IV anunciou no Microsoft Exchange Team Blog que a ferramenta Mailbox Server Role Storage Requirements Calculator foi mais uma vez actualizada, agora para a versão 14.2.
De acordo com a página de registo de actualizações, estas são as principais novidades:
Version 14.2 Updates
- Fixed two-node stretched DAG scenario that resulted in calculator not reporting results due to new copy validation check
Version 14.1 Updates
- Fixed the Activation Results Scenarios to no longer display #NAME when dealing with dedicated lagged copy servers.
- Fixed 2 LUNs / Backup Set formula for the 11th database grouping set in the DB and Log LUN Design / Server table to display the correct number of databases in the grouping set.
- Fixed "Number of Active Databases / SDC Server (After First PDC Server Failure)" calculations to take into account stretched Single DAG without dedicated DR servers.
- Fixed "Number of Required Mailbox Processor Cores (Primary Datacenter)" formula to respect when site resilience is disabled and A/A (Single DAG) is selected.
- Fixed formatting for scenario that resulted in more HA database copies being deployed in the secondary datacenter than in the primary datacenter and also improved validation checks.
- Updated "Custom Number of Databases" (Input Section) and "Number of Databases" (Role Requirements section) text to indicate in standalone situations that the "Custom Number of Databases" is per server and "Number of Databases" is for the environment.
- Fixed 2nd PDC failure formula to enable site resilient scenarios that have 3 copies in PDC to allow double server failure event.
- Optimized Number of Mailboxes per Database (I/O Driven) to not round up odd numbers to the next even number.
- Fixed text in various comment fields.
- Added conditional formatting for Exchange Native Data Protection input factor to alert when you are deploying with less than the recommended number of HA copies.

Using TMG and UAG to Securely Publish Outlook Web App and Exchange ActiveSync with Certificate Based Authentication
Using TMG and UAG to Securely Publish Outlook Web App and Exchange ActiveSync with Certificate Based Authentication é um whitepaper técnico, disponibilizado recentemente pela Microsoft.
This white paper provides detailed information about publishing Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 using Forefront TMG or Forefront UAG to secure access for Exchange ActiveSync and Outlook Web App when used with certificate authentication.
When you publish Exchange, Microsoft offers two software-based options: Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 and Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway 2010. Both options offer publishing wizards and security features to provide secure access to Exchange when it's accessed from outside the safety of the corporate network.

Foi recentemente disponibilizado pela Microsoft o whitepaper Using IPsec to Secure Access to Exchange.
This white paper will walk you through setting up IPsec for access to Exchange 2010 and configuring Forefront TMG and Forefront UAG to work with IPsec.
By allowing remote access to Microsoft Exchange to users who are based outside the safety of the corporate network, an organization enables its employees to take full advantage of the technology their company provides. When considering remote access, an organization must also consider how to secure their corporate information. There are several different ways to secure access to corporate information, including VPNs, Direct Access, and IPsec. When enabling and requiring IPsec on the endpoint that’s used to publish Exchange to the Internet, only machines with the right credentials can establish a connection.
Microsoft offers two software-based options for publishing Exchange to the Internet: Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 and Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway 2010. Both options offer publishing wizards and security features to provide secure access to Exchange when it is accessed from outside the safety of the corporate network and both work well with an IPsec based security solution. This white paper will walk you through setting up IPsec and configuring Forefront TMG and Forefront UAG to work with IPsec.
