Hi there,

I wonder the below scenario advisable?

Will be installing CSS into DC. Then ISA array services will be installed on 2 different standalone server.

Thanks.

You should always make the ISA Firewall array members domain members unless you have a very specific reason not to. Remember, domain membership is more secure than standalone.

HTH,
Tom

CSS on a DC is not advisible at all. A DC should be a DC end of story. The Active directory is the core element of your infrastructure.
Plus installing a CSS on a DC will give you lots of trouble to make your A working as all traffic will be closed down.
Finally if your CSS is running SQL Server that will definitly kill your DC physical ressources such as memory/cpu.

And finally as Tom said ISA should be installed on domain members for security reason but also for manageability reason (Group Policies etc...).
