Preparing the INI File for Deployment

You will now learn how the Ini file is used to deploy and configure a UAG using Powershell and how to edit the contents of the Ini file for your UAG deployments.

1. Configuring the General deployment settings

An Initialization (INI) file containing all the configuration settings is required to deploy the Unified Access Gateway Appliance.

In this lab you will use the uag-2NIC.ini file and fill out the respective parameters for your deployment.

You will be deploying a new Unified Access Gateway appliance called UAG-2NIC that has two NICs. NIC1 will be set to the internet facing network and NIC2 for the backend and management networks.
