Logging to File, unable to view logs in console - 16.May2007 2:00:29 PM

I recently switched from logging to the MSDE instance on my ISA 2004 box to logging to file, when I attempt to view anything but live traffic in the logging console (i.e. set the filter log to to be anything but "Live")  it says " Web Proxy Component doesn't log to MSDE. Please select another log type or redfine Web Proxy logging settings before setting this filter", if I change the Log record type to be just "Firewall" it says the same thing except replaced "Web Proxy" with "Firewall". The ISA server is generating log files in the specified location, I just cant search them... Any ideas?

I hear ya bud - this is a hard lesson I learned when switching over to log files as well. I learned as much as I could about Microsoft's Log Parser and I'm glad I did - it's a nice way to query your logs.

You can use TAIL and QGREP to perform some very basic searches, but Log Parser is the way to go.
