Well "you never know your luck in  a big city",  it might just happen,
this weekend.
 
A client has requested that I install SQL loging on their ISA2004 server
this weekend. 
 
So i'll capture the screen shots and steps, and write it up.
 
I'll post next week (if it all works).

Here is what would totally rock
someone who is an ace at setting this up, write up a nice, illustrated,
How To article.. :)

Yeah that was the plan, to use said tools or to import the log files
into sql for some customized historical reporting.
 
Thanks

        Local text logging is *always* cheaper, performance-wise.

        No network will beat out a local disk for speed.

        No application (read: DSN or ODBC connection) can beat the
simplicity of "dump data to Windows disk buffers".

         

        The disadvantage to text logging is that you lose the historical
aspect of ISA monitoring.

        You can make up for this with such kewl tewls as LogParser.

        It seems the steps that you are using are correct. Can you be
more specific about what detail the error messages contain. Does it give
you anything about permissions for odbc connectivity. If i had to bet i
would say that you had name resolution issues which were effecting the
connection to the sql box.

         

         

        Thor, Jim and Tom and anyone else.. in your environments have
you experienced any great performance hit logging to sql databases.
would you consider logging to text files and rolling the file over to
the database at night or is it not worth it?

                i was throwing out there the steps i followed. i was
hoping for some to tell me which step , or steps, were incorrect.. not
just 'stuff'

                "stuff worked, then I did stuff and stuff don't' work"
isn't getting any where.

                Engage Tim - he really does know his SQL stuff.

                The longer you keep playing with it (and trying
unrelated things), the longer you prolong your agony.

                when i configured webproxy logging, the firewall service
would not start.

                i got the error listed in the tech article below. Ive
seen this error before, along with the suggested fix, but could never
find that tab ..

                 

                Now, lets start from the beginning.. tell me where i
went wong.

                sql 2005 x64 box setup. I ran the firewall.sql and
webproxy.sql files, following the ISA help instructions

                in isa 2004 (sp2), i enabled remote sql logging, and
even created a computer object in to put on the "to" tab.

                saved my config.

                created a system DSN in ODBC, connecting to the SQL box,
and to the firewall database. tested the connection, and it connected
fine.

                went to configure firewal logging first.. chose SQL.
set the name of the odbc connection, typed in firewalllog as the table.

                set the account properties as domain\user, where user
was the SQL adminitrator account, since I knew this should all "god"
type permissions all over the SQL box.

                clicked OK

                clicked APPLY.. ISA went thru its stuf.. came back
saying a service couldnt start.

                tried to start the firewall service.. nada.

                set the logging back to MSDE.. tried to start the
firewall service.. nada. i had to reinstall and restore.

                id have to go thru the steps again to give you the
specific errors, but i remember 11004 10427 as a couple event ID
numbers.

                 

                so, seeing what I did above, before I got the errors..
what did I forget to do, or to improperly??
