It's been a while since I last wrote here and that's just because our ISA2k4 SP3 has been running quite good. As we all know - all (good) things come to an end and so will our current ISA.
In the 2k4 configuration we had just two FW nodes (in one array) that also acted as the CSS. Now we have a dedicated CSS and two FW node-array (in which one of the FWs is the alternate CSS). As you might hae guessed we're running the new ISA on different servers (/new hardware) than the previous version.
The idea was to install a fresh ISA configuration so that all the basic settings should be done manually (NLBs, network rules etc...). We should however be able to import Enterprise FW Policy from the 2k4 and the array policy. If I try this, I get the following error message:
"The ISA Server configuration cannot be imported because it was exported from a computer running an earlier version of ISA Server without requesting inclusion of the user permission settings or confidential information. For upgrading, the configuration must be exported with inclusion of these settings and the confidential information."
The error message is the same regardless I'm importing with or without the password. We currently have 1075 rows of rules in the 2k4, so we must import the stuff. Configuring it manually is impossible.
I also have this one network that contains over a 100 rows which I'd really like to import, not type in manually. If I export it from the ISA2k4 and try to import to 2k6,l I get the following error:
Error: 0xc00403a4 The file cannot be imported. The exported file contains an object of type Network which cannot be imported into an object of type PC Network Configuration.
We're having switch over to production with the ISA2k6 next weekend so your answers/tips will be greatly appreciated!
