Release date: May 14th 2019
Welcome to my VMware Unified Access Gateway series. This topic will cover the preparations I will have to get done prior to deploying my new UAG appliances. I have divided it up in the sections below.
- Download UAG installation media, powershell scripts
- Download and install OVF deployment Tool on a management server with necessary access to vCenter/hosts
- Create an ini-file for each of my two deployments
- Configure DNS-hosts for UAG’s
- Collect Horizon-info
- Configure firewall port openings between wan, dmz, management, production
