UAG, TMG, and other G's

This Forefront business has been quite a conundrum for a while: 

  • Old news first - TMG is being discontinued, you can read more about it here
  • UAG marches on, at least for now. And hopefully will soon catch up with a slew of already released products - like Exchange 2013, SharePoint 2013, Windows 8, IE10, etc. - by actually supporting them. That stuff is coming in SP3 (Q1 2013)
  • And while you are waiting for the SP3 to arrive, here's a quick post on how to fix one of the issues commonly associated with the SP2 upgrade - "The URL contains an invalid parameter" error

Lync'ing Skype and Goodbye Messenger!

After wondering for a while about a mishmash of communications services from Microsoft - some self-grown some acquired, some business and some consumer oriented - the world finally makes sense again! :)
