Yeah - that's what I thought too. Check out the edit that I just made about running (openssl x509 -noout -modulus -in my_app.crt | openssl md5 ; openssl rsa -noout -modulus -in my_app.key | openssl md5) | uniq.

comment Idea for taking down half of the servers vs rolling restart?
Yeah - I've thought about that too. Having the forward-compatible requirement seems a little silly though. I'm really curious as to how others do this type of deployment. Every article that I've read pretty much uses rolling deployments... but they don't really talk about any of the issues I've brought up.

We may or may not go full blown app compatible... but it's something we have to consider.

@HTTP500 - We try to minimize migrations that require locking tables etc. So, for example, we do a column drop over two migrations (since requests to V1 still need the column). Otherwise, we'd have to schedule some sort of maintenance or put the app into "readonly" mode (which we have yet to implement). Check out this slide deck that describes what I mean (it's RoR but still applies).

Right - and this is what we currently do and don't have an issue with. However, there are other requests that aren't versioned (such as AJAX requests). With a rolling-restart, you could serve HTML V2 of your app, and then do an AJAX request to a WS that is only V1.

Could this work with subdomains? I also don't see the TS Gateway service in 2008 R2.. I think it's been renamed to Remote Desktop Services?

I never even thought about using a VPN. The only downside is that I'd need a client on every machine that I need to access it from. This isn't very ideal since I sometimes using my Android HTC Desire or a machine from a lab at my university or some place else. Are there any decent portable VPN clients?

Ideally I'd like to keep things light without extra clients, but thanks for the tip I'll keep it in mind.

Yeah the only problem about the double rdp is that it can be pretty slow because of the upload speed of the network..
