We are attempting to publish a simple web site from a new ISA 2006 installed on a Windows 2003 server. Our older ISA server 2000 failed so we recently upgraded. We can publish our web site, which is residing on our Windows 2000 domain controller, through Server Publishing Rules. However, we are unable to publish through the Web Publishing Rules. In addition we were able to publish our Exchange 2000 mail server, but can not publish the OWA associated with it.
Are there any issues using ISA 2006 on a Window 2003 server and publishing from within a 2000 domain? If not, we may have an installation problem as we can not ‘browse’ any of our internal node IP addresses when entering them from within the publishing wizards, either web publishing or owa publishing.
I used the wizard to setup the simple web. As for the listener I used the same one I created to publish through a server publishing rule and it worked fine there, and IIS is installed on the ISA server.
IIS on ISA is a killer....That's an open invitation to so many issues. I believe its a port conflict. If IIS is using the port 80 then ISA wont listen and will not correctly bind that with web listeners. To be sure we dont have any port conflicts go to CMD and type netstat -ano and check if you see any entry similar to 0.0.0.0:80 or 0.0.0.0:443
If you have any entry similar to that, it means the ports are being used by IIS.
Thanks for the info. I had an opertunity over the week-end to resolve the problem. You were correct, the IIS was causing the issues. Once we removed it, publishing was simple (After correcting for the new autorities changes).
You can see from my previous reply, we have corrected the issue. However, I am interested in your response. We are a member of a domain. However, we login locally to the ISA server when we bring it up or work on it. Should this make any difference?
Glad to know that you resolved the issue Just for reference, ISA should not have any other services like DNS, IIS, DHCP, AD etc installed on it. It creates issues and opens the machine to so many vulnarabilities.
