Low-frequency updates continue to be the word of the month, much to my chagrin; I’ve got an aggressive travel schedule (well, aggressive for me at any rate) this month, combined with leather-clad, spike-studded deadlines on projects. After doing Exchange Connections in Orlando last week, I just got back from Denver after speaking at the Windows IT Pro Exchange 2007 roadshow.
Back in January, I noticed and posted about a curious assumption I’d found in the Exchange 2007 docs that Edge Transport servers would be dual-homed on both the Internet and the internal network, instead of having a single network interface in the perimeter network. I pointed out that this really didn’t gain you any benefits and made things more complicated, and I made sure to pass this feedback on to Microsoft.
Well, they’ve responded: the most recent update of the Exchange 2007 documentation shows that the dual-interface assumption has been removed from the relevant topic. It’s nice to know I wasn’t missing something! Thank you, Microsoft, for the response.
