You should gather information about the Configuration Storage server and ISA Server array members as described in the following sections.

Configuration Storage Server

Update the following table with information about the Configuration Storage server.

For information about the Configuration Storage server, see ISA Server Enterprise Edition Components later in the document.

Note the following:

  • Make sure to have DNS configured properly because the Configuration Storage server needs to be able to resolve the FQDN names of all of the array members.

Note the following:

  • If you have a server with more than one network adapter, you typically enter one default gateway. With ISA Server, the default gateway is usually configured on the external network adapter.

  • If there are additional internal networks that are connected using a router, add required routes to ISA Server prior to beginning the installation.

  • Make sure that routing is properly configured before installing ISA Server 2006.

  • DNS servers in most cases should be configured on the internal network adapter and should point to an internal DNS server. Confirm that the name resolution is working properly.

  • Depending on your configuration, you might have to create an access rule to allow DNS queries from the Internal network.

  • If routing and name resolution are not working properly and ISA Server 2006 is installed, it will be difficult to troubleshoot the cause of the problem.
