Reviewing the INI Files for Deployment
There are two INI files available and pre-configured with all settings for deployment needed for this exercise. In this chapter, you will review the configuration.
uag-HA1.ini contains all the settings to deploy an instance named UAG-H1, and a second file named uag-HA2.ini will deploy an instance named UAG-H2.
1. Opening the INI files
A INI file containing all the configuration settings is required to deploy the Unified Access Gateway appliance using PowerShell deployment.
In this exercise, you use the uag-HA1.ini and uag-HA2.ini files to deploy two Unified Access Gateways, one named UAG-HA1 and the other named UAG-HA2. Each Unified Access Gateway will have two NICs, where NIC one is Internet-facing and NIC two for backend and management.
- Click the File Explorer icon on the task bar.
- Click Documents.
- Click HOL.
- Click Unified Access Gateway.
- Select both the
uag-HA2.inifiles, then right-click.
- Click Edit with Notepad++ to open both files.
2. Reviewing the IP address assigned to each Appliance
It's important to review and make sure ALL the settings are configured identically, including the edge services on all appliances that will be part of the cluster.
The only exception is the IP addresses assigned to each appliance; in this activity note the ip0 (internet) and ip1 (management and internal) unique addresses used in each INI file. The IP addresses are the only difference between the two appliances to be deployed, and everything else remains the same.
