I would like to know if there are any downsides of using a hardware loadbalancer in combination with a isa server array.
So no Windows NLB will be used.

I have never had the oppurtonity to test this.

I had the unique opportunity of having lunch with the ISA PSS guys in Las Colinas last week. We all agreed that one of the most troublesome configurations was the "hardware" load balancer in front of the ISA Firewall, mostly because the other guys play pretty fast and loose with RFCs and the products behave in some very unexpected fashions.

thanks for the input.
The setup isn't that difficult.
With MS LCS etc. hardware loadbalancers work great.
