I am trying to publish an Exchange 2007 OWA server using Forms Based Authentication. In the process of doing this I have managed to corrupt a rule. Every time I click on the rule to delete it I get an error message..."The item selected could not be completed due to an unexpected error." and under the Details button I get..."The system cannot find the file specified."

I cannot save any configurations with this rule there. How do I get rid of it. I have looked in the Registry and deleted it there but it comes back.

I need Help!!!

I discoverd the solution!!!

In ISA Server 2006 EE the configuration is stored in ADAM (Active Directory Application Mode)
Connect to you ADAM ADSI Edit
Server Name: localhost and port: 2171
Connect to the following node:
Distinguished name (DN) or namingContext: CN=FPC2
Navigate to CN=Array-Root
CN=Arrays
CN={ID of your Array}
CN=ArrayPolicy
CN=PolicyRules
CN={ID of the bad rule}

I then deleted the entire Rule container and that fixed the problem

So, how do I delete a corrupt rule if I am running Standard Edition?

The same/similar path should exist in the registry for ISA SE...

Cheers

Well, ISA 2006 Standard Edition doesn't use ADAM (Active Directory Application Mode) like the Enterprise Edition does, which is why I couldn't find it. 

I eventually discovered that SE stores it in the registry instead of ADAM.  The location for my offending rule was:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\IsaStg_Eff1Policy\PolicyRules\[some GUID string]\

Deleting the entire key and restarting the ISA Server Storage service solved the problem!

Just as a supporting note, we have ISA 2006 enterprise and we had had this problem.  We had to remove this corrupt entry from both ADAM and the registry.

Just a note about TMG storage.

TMG SE and EE store configuration informaion in AD LDS -- so there is no more registry based configuration and storage for TMG firewalls.

HTH,
Tom

How do I isolate the rule down in adsiedit? I know the rule name in TMG but not the CN name.

Thanks,
Dave

You may need to go through each CN and look at the description attribute that you can then match the name against...
