FPCArray object

Applies to: desktop apps only

The FPCArray object defines a single Forefront TMG array, and its properties provide access to the array-level configuration settings in the hierarchy of administration COM objects for the Forefront TMG computers associated with it. Each Forefront TMG computer is associated with a single array.

When multiple Forefront TMG computers are associated with the same FPCArray object, you can configure these servers at the same time through the array-level properties and methods of the FPCArray object. A group of Forefront TMG computers that are associated with the same array can be managed as a single, logical entity and can provide distributed caching, load balancing, and fault tolerance.

This object is an element of the FPCArrays collection, and a new object representing an additional array can be created by calling the Add method of the FPCArrays collection.

Note  In Standard Edition, there is only one FPCArray object in the FPCArrays collection, and it provides access to the configuration settings of only a single Forefront TMG computer.

The way in which an FPCArray object is retrieved depends on the components of Forefront TMG that are installed and running on the computer on which the code is being executed. For information about retrieving an FPCArray object after creating the root object, see Retrieving an Array Object.

For code examples that use the FPCArray object, see Forefront TMG Administration Scripting.
