Re: ISA SP2 - Issues

That "PSS tech" was greatly misinformed. 
This was true for ISA 2000, but not for ISA 2004.

RDP is working fine from the Terminal Server to the SBS Server now, I had to 
re-associate the internal NIC with the RDP connection at one point, but that's 
a different issue.  First time I've run into it, but apparently there is an RPC 
issue (Outlook 2003 uses RPC) between the Terminal Server and the SBS Server 
(which has ISA Server on it).  This was also my first SBS & Exchange setup, so 
I've been stressing on it and a bit grumpy lately from lack of sleep and heat 
from the client to "get it done"  ;-)

Steve Moffat had it right when he said the "The W2K3 RPC issue with W2k3 SP1"
I believe.

This brings up an interesting point.  I was told by one MS tech @ PSS that 
internal communications between computers on my internal network and the SBS 
Server (with ISA 2004) should not be scanned by the ISA Server, however, that 
does not appear to be correct.  Live and learn.

There is a microsoft article on the RPC issue at
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;897716

I started a thread on this at
http://forums.isaserver.org/Outlook_Terminal_Server_to_SBS_Exchange_Issue/m_2
002006699/tm.htm
 which is at All Forums >> [ISA Server 2004 General ] >> ISA 2004 SBS >> 
Outlook Terminal Server to SBS Exchange Issue  where Kyle had the solution.

Now, I am having a hard time being able to tell what service pack for ISA is 
already installed, as the help about does not display an SP1 or SP2.  Please 
see the thread, and answer if you can, at All Forums >> [ISA Server 2004 
General ] >> Installation >> ISA 2004 SP!

The version # I'm seeing on my installation is 4.0.2163.213.  Am trying to 
figure out if I can just install the update as indicated by the Microsoft 
article, or if I need to install SP1 or SP2 first.  From all the traffic going 
on about SP2, I'm real hesitant to put that one on, though it should include 
the hotfix I need.

Thanks for your attention,

Anthony

Terminal Services? Are you sure you're not confusing RDP and RPC? :) Or maybe I 
am just silly and understood that the wrong way...

If you're asking me. I'd say don't install SP2. There's really not much benefit 
for such a small firm. I'd instead focus on getting the server configured and 
leave SP2 for later. What known RPC issue? I've got terminal servers all over 
the place and have never had an RPC problem.



FYI: addressing your email directly to Dr. Shinder is a sure fire way to have 
it ignored by everyone else on the list.

Thank you for the reply Steve,



It appears that most of the folks here are too busy to assist newbies like 
myself, they've got more important things to talk about like "how to waste an 
hour of your life"...good grief...



The message boards don't seem to have many of you advanced folks helping out 
much--or maybe just with my basic questions.  I guess I get what I paid for.  
Maybe it's the SBS thing...I feel like a leper.  If it weren't for SBS I never 
would have been introduced to ISA Server, though.



Argh, I don't want to rant and alienate the folks here but I'm frustrated with 
the lack of responses on basic questions.  I've been reading, googling and 
experimenting a lot (ISA, SBS, Exchange) some of it sticks, some of it doesn't. 
 Is there a more appropriate website or board I should use for beginner 
questions?



Again, thank you for your reply, Steve, and apologies for the rant,



Anthony

It can be installed remotely, but ou need to be physically there to restart the 
server, or have someone do it for you as it stops requests on completion.



Yes install it.

Dr. Thomas,



I was looking to install the upgrade ISA Server 2004 SP2 soon due to an issue 
between my Terminal Server (Win2K3 SP1) not communicating with my SBS Server 
with regards to Outlook 2003 due to a known RPC issue.



I am a newbie in regards to ISA.  And SBS.  Though the school of hard knocks is 
training me quick ;-)



What is the sequence to delete an existing cache?



Will BITS caching be turned on by default when installing SP2?



What is the sequence to configure BITS caching?



Do you advise installing ISA SP2 in a small network setup (10 -
15 users) ?



I've read a few times here that installing ISA SP2 through terminal services is 
not advised.  Maybe it is OK if you hook in with the /console switch.  What is 
your take on this issue?



Thanks,



Anthony
