Hi there

I need to perform a hardware upgrade on a server machine running ISA2004,but cannot afford downtime. Can someone please help me with the procedures involved in connecting a new server,transferring ISA2004 settings from the old server to the new one,and enabling the new server/disabling the old server without causing downtime(a few minutes won't matter though) or changing default gateway addresses on all workstations?
Thanks in advance for assistance
Tim

1- Setup a new machine with the same name of your old ISA
2- (Do not connect it to the network ) setup the network interfaces on your new ISA as the settings on your old ISA
3- Create a Backup/Export of ur ISA 2004 Configuration into an XML file
4- Restore/Import your XML file on your new ISA 2004.

5- disconnect your old ISA from the network
6- In AD , right click your old ISA computer object and click Reset Account
7- Connect your New ISA to the network , Join it to the domain.
8- Done


HTH

Thanks for your help elmajdal, I have tried this method but I cannot get the new server machine to register on the domain(error is ISA cannot connect to the DC).Do you perhaps know why this is or what I am doing wrong?

Another method i have heard of is similar to the method 'samplex' mentioned in a post earlier except he was upgrading ISA2000 to ISA2004; by adding the new server as a different IP address in the internal network,adding it to the domain,installing ISA,transferring settings then disconnecting the old server..is it now possible to change the internal IP address of the new server to match the gateway address configured in all the workstations(the Internal IP of the old server),which would avoid reconfiguring all workstations?
Thanks so much for your interest in helping me concerning this problem!

its always best practire to join your machine to the domain , and then install ISA Server.
