Yes my log files are there but ISA does not want to include them when I generate a report.
What happend was that the Firewall blocked all Vista users from connecting to the DHCP server and then I had to uninstall and reinstall ISA but during the uninstall i asked that my ISA logs be kept. But now how do I get my logs to work again.
ISA doesn't want to use them and I dont know why. If you can help me, please do as the information that I need to pull from it is very important to our company.

I have downloaded the toolkit and used the MDF viewer and it works, it opens the log files and can view them but, I need a detailed report of bandwidth usage and ISA is not using these backed up logs in the reports that I generate.
I have discovered that ISA does not give accurate bandwidth usage but the Vista thing is very interesting.
But how can I get detailed bandwidth reports and fix the Vista DHCP thing.
Im using Webmonitor but its not user friendly, it wants me to use SQL server for compiling detailed reports and Ive tried using its report features and honestly it sucks if you dont know how to use SQL server.
Is there a better way and still I need to be able to pull reports from the backed up log but ISA does not want to do this. Please help.
I would only have an overall picture of webmonitor if the report part of it was easy to setup.
I installed SQL Server 2005 and then I used the MSFW database for Webmonitor to use for Webmonitor Report Pack but the report pack says that it needs to use a Microsoft SQL database and not a MSDE database.
Now I have SQL server installed but I dont know how to create a new database for webmonitor to use. If I knew I would do it and then and be able to see how accurate webmonitor really is other that ISA's reports.
If you know how to do this your help will be appreciated as the Webmonitor support did not help much.
But My ISA is still not using the backed up logs when I generate a new report, It only uses the new reports.
