i have installed MSA ISA Server2006 Enterprise Edition. and i want to install MSA ISA Server2006 Branch Edition and want to make a member of array in Enterprise edition. MSA ISA is Celestix device. they have combined Windows2003 server OS and ISA Server2006 in one unit. When i configure Enterprise edition default array is generated having same name of system. When i configure Branch Edition i opt for Joining Existing Array and give the name of array on Enterprise Edition and also Configuration Storage Server is on Enterprise Edition. These both Servers are in domain. But after cinfiguration default array is generated having same name of system on Branch Edition Server also 'n' on EE side no server is added under given named array.
Can u plz plz help me in this \? what can be the reason for this. i have followed the steps given in ISA quick setup guide.
thanks for reply. Actually its Multiple Security appliance designed by Celestix networks company which combines ISA firewaal, VPN 'n' cache in one box.
The configuration that i was following is wrong. now i have configured ISA server 2006 Enterprise Edition for VPN connection successfully. But when i m trying to configure Branch Edition as VPN connection and trying to join array on Enterprise edition its failing. After last step i.e. windows authentication its displaying error that "an attempt to authenticate to the configuration storage server computer failed. the server service may be stopped aton css computer"
But Server service is started on CSS computer. 'n' in log file its giving error ISA SETUP CA INFO: GetAccountInfo failed with 0x800706ba trying to create a connection to the configuration server. ISA SETUP CA Error: CAUTONETUSE::Connect:WNetAddConnection2w failed with 1203 ISA SETUP CA Warning: AutoNetUse.connect failed. hr=0x800704b2
Can u plz help me to solve this problem? thanks anu
yup Isa server Enterprise edition and branch edition are in same domain. My question is: My configuration is: One ISA Server 2006 Enterprise Edition(Main Office) with one array and one server under that array. I have configured VPN connection over there. One ISA Server 2006 Branch edition and i want to configure this also as VPN connection and i want to join this server to array on Enterprise Edition Side(Main Office)
Can Isa Server2006 branch edition join an enterprise array over site-to-site VPN connection?
Yes! You need to use the site to site VPN wizard. All the details are in my article series on this site.
Also, make sure you join the branch office to a different array. You can't join it to the main office array because the IP addressing information at the branch office puts the internal and external interfaces on different network IDs from the main office.
thanks for reply. this solves my problem to sm extent. Now i have done configuration sucessfully but my problem is:
In Enterprise side MMC for Branch server Array error is : unable to retrieve data from server. In Branch side MMC its working fine. Also i m unable to ping their LAN IPs i.e. branch LAN IP form Enterprise side and vice-versa.
No, i m using IPsec with preshared key. Now its working but sometimes RPC failed connection is comming in logging tabs. 'n' even though vpn connection is successful now but i m unable to ping their LAN IPs from either side.
2 ISA Server 2006 for Enterprise and Branch server Branch server is connecting to CSS on Enterprise side and joining second array on enterprise side only. For all this we r providing WEB UI for VPN connection and through UI preparing answer file that is used by APPCFGWZD.exe.
The problem is- first time when this runs, it shows the following problem:
time ISA setup CA INFO : Verifying that account: celestixtest.com\CELESTIX-Branch$ can be authenticated by storage server: celestix-ent.celestixtest.com time ISA setup CA WARNING: AccountToSid(Local) failed. hr=0x800706FD time ERROR: CustomAction 'VerifyDomainTrustWithStorageServer' failed, result=1603. time ERROR: (TaskID=7, TaskName='VERIFY_DOMAIN_TRUST_WITH_CSS')->Run() failed, hr = 0x80004005(=E_UNEXPECTED). time ERROR: An attempt to use Windows authentication to authenticate the request sent to the Configuration Storage server computer failed. Refer to Getting Started Guide for help on setting up Windows authentication.
But when i run this appcfgwzd.exe file agian with the same answerfile then its successfull and connection is created. Enterprise server is running successfully on bpth sides. But then on Main side - for branch Server the message is - "unable to retrieve data from server(branch)". On Branch side- there is no problem, server is in synchronization with CSS.
My doubt is: Why is it successfull when we run APPCFGWZD.EXE second time? Can u plz explain me the concept behind this? And also what does it mean from "Windows Authentication" I want to solve this problem: it should be successfull first time only. I am a programmer and working on this issue only.
And one More Problem is: After successful configuration Through WebUI(on Main Machine only): Branch Server is showing error "Unable to retreive data from server". and No Problem with Main server. But in WebUI(on Branch side)- there is no such error (for both Main & Branch).
What can be the possible cause for this?
I got stuck at this point. I have to solve these two issues programmatically. But i m unable to understand the possible causes of these problems..
Please help me in this.
Can i discuss this issue online with u? If possible then plz tell me the time 'n' procedure to be online on this site(or some where else).
But my problem get solved. Actually we are using vbscript in which we r running two exe files(Isaaappinit.exe and Appcfgwzd.exe) continuously. Now we have given sleep for some time after executing isaaappinit.exe. Now Appcfgwzd.exe is running successfully.
But still i am unable to identify the actual cause of the problem Can u help me in this?(Isaappinit.exe is enabling some ISA services and starting CSS also.)
