  • isa 2004 / 2006

    i am currently running exchange 2003 sp2 on windows server 2003. i have a primary domain controller and an additional domain. we were using isa 2004 but the hardware of the server crashed out. now we are looking to close up the additional domain and make it an isa server. please let me know which one is advisable. isa 2004 or 2006. we have around 100 users distributed in different countries.

    also it would be helpful if you can provide me some links to find out the complete installation and configuration procedure as i am new to the company and have never implemented and used isa before.

    Re: isa 2004 / 2006

    why not investigate Forefront Threat Management Gateway as well ?

    Personally - I'd go 2006 over 2004, based mainly on support life cycles...
    there's plenty of info on Technet about how to install/configure it etc.

    hopefully you have your backups of the configuration..

      As Tehcamel said, Forefront TMG is your best bet. As it's now RTM ISA 2006 will only be available through downgrade rights, although is 2008 64-bit only and ISA is 2003 32-bit only which may be a factor.

      Definitely go for 2006 if you are going the ISA route, it's newer and has some nice features added like change tracking. If you are an ISA Server newbie I'd suggest heading over to isaserver.org and having a read through some of the articles there. ISA is pretty easy to misconfigure or break if you don't know what you are doing.

          Re: isa 2004 / 2006

          I am an ISA newbie and have never ever worked with ISA. I plan to go the ISA 2006 way. I was looking out for some free videos which would be of more ease when compared to going thru documentations or at least some documentations with snapshots available in it. I even searched torrents but could not find what i was looking for on ISA 2006.

          I am still on the hunt for the information. I would be really thankful if you can provide any specific links.

              Thanks Marcel. Now I need to crash my brains on ISAserver.org. I will let you all know once I have implemented the ISA Server.

                ISAserver.org has plenty of articles. I'm still in the progress of writing them on my own, but time is an issue for me
                If you are looking for some trainingvideo's you might have a look at CBTnuggets or Trainsignal. They are ISA 2004 trainings but they will be suffient enough. There are some changes between ISA 2004 and 2006 but not that much. In fact, even Microsoft don't have a seperated study materials..
                Also I came across this course http://www.learnitfirst.com/Course/223/ISA-2006.aspx however I can't tell you if they are good or not.

                  I know you wanted something free but Train Signal ISA 2004 Lab is an extremely cost effective alternative. http://www.trainsignal.com/ISA-Serve...ining-P26.aspx This Lab will get you up to speed with ISA in less than a day.

                  2 2 was 1 2.
