I'am planning a large installation of ISA servers, but i'am unsure how many nic's the ISA Server can handle. I also here thinking of interrupts and performance..
Does anybody know ??
(in one ISA server i have to put in 11 nic's)

u can have NIC with ISA as much as u want.
the only thing u have to know , is that u can only have one gateway only.

ISA does not support multiple gateways.

say if u want to have 11 nics, then only one nic can have a gateway set on it.

Thanks for the answer.
But Im still interested in the question about I/O performance, and maybe someone out there has tried a similar installation.

how about if i have one of the ISA servers with 16 NIC on it.
i use the PCI card with multiple ethernet ports.

about performance,i've never had a problem .

i always keep the ISA as a firewall only , and not install a webserver or any other application on it.
