FIX: Logging to a remote SQL Server database fails in a Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 environment when the database name includes a hyphen (-) character

Applies to: Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario. In a Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 environment, you use Microsoft SQL Server remote logging, and the remote database name includes a hyphen (-) character.
