I just set up a new server. I made a slipstream image of windows 2003 server std with sp2 and did the following:
1) Installed 2003 server w/sp2 2) Ran windows update & installed everything critical, software, drivers, except for IE7 3) joined the domain 4) installed ISA 2004 std 5) installed ISA 2004 sp3 6) upon re-boot, noticed that it took a long time to get to ctrl-alt-del, and after login, log time processing user settings.
I then opened ISA mgmt and attempted to create an "Authorized Internet Users" User set. Clicking Add & selecting "windows users and groups", changing the location to the domain rather than local computer, entered a partial name "Internet" to grab the domain group "Internet Users". It matched several things on the domain with "internet" in them, so I clicked "Internet Users" and then Ok.
After about 1 minute with an hourglass, I get "Unable to add the group Internet Users because of the following: RPC Server Unavailable".
I tried changing the tcpip registry setting "EnableRSS" to 0, but it didn't help.
I tried modifying the bindings & network settings as mentioned elsewhere on this board, no luck.
I disabled the RPC filter and it's working, but I don't think I should've done that.

After a reboot, it takes a very very very long time to log-in to the server. In the event log is an application event log error #1053: "Windows cannot determine the user or computer name" when I log in to the console or via RDP. During this period, if I open internet explorer on a web proxy client, that user gets prompted for a username/password, which is never accepted.
After about 15 minutes, it clears up. Logging in to the console and/or via RDP does not generate any error messages and the server appears to behave fine.
I run a split-dns setup, with an internal dns server on my domain controller, and another dns server for external resolving on a different ISA box. That other ISA box is fine.

Set these keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableRSS (set to 0) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableTCPA (set to 0) EnableTCPChimney and EnableSecurityFilters (both 0)

Instead of sitting at "Loading personal settings" for 5 minutes, it blipped past that so fast I almost missed it, switching to "Applying personal settings". That took maybe 30 seconds to go away, which is about normal for a just-booted server if you log in as soon as you see the ctrl-alt-del prompt.
I immediatly fired up a remote desktop from my workstation and logged in. It let me in immediatly. I looked in the event log, and there are no "RPC Server unavailable" errors in the system log, and no "Windows cannot determing the user or computer name" in the application log.
Web browsing with proxy settings turned on worked immediatly too. No prompts for username/password.
Everything looks good. I was about ready to blow it away, re-install with my 2003sp1 disc, and put my slipstreamed 2003sp2 disc in the shredder. Maybe I should see if I can add kb936594 to it and make a new disc.
I'll probably try re-enabling the RPC filter, but not right now.
