I am currently looking at upgrading our single Access Gateway Appliance
and AAC, the new versions seem to be Access Gateway 5.0 and Access


I have the VPX VM set up on XenServer and the Access Controller on the
same XenServer with Web Interface 5.4 on a 2008 server VM all on the
same server.


I am relatively new the virtual world of server other than in test beds.


My question is :  For live production is there any security reasons that
I should not run the VPN Access Gateway on the same host as the 2008 VM.


I would want to double up and provide two host servers with two VM's
running on each.


I know our current set up the internal leg of the gateway goes directly
into our network and not through the ISA servers so would there be any
difference in my suggestion providing I am using a total separate
Network card for the External port of the CAG.
