Hey Michael I have 18 ISA's conforming 8 arrays, with a forest of 3 domains, 2 DMZ zones, 4 OWA's and I don't know how many websites published locally. I don't know what happen on a bigger environment, but believe me; the export works fine for me. Regards Diego R. Pietruszka ________________________________ From: isalist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:isalist-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Michael Ross Sent: Thursday, October 26, 2006 10:33 PM To: isalist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [isalist] backups ok i know i asked this before, and its not popular. but i need to find the right config to allow a remote backupexec server to backup my isa server simply exporting the configs is not enough. i have so many domain and\or url sets that the export operation times out.. any help is appreciated.
