bingyeo -> ISA Server failed to load the firewall policy configuration (14.May2009 11:56:10 PM)

Hi

I have encountered the following errors in my ISA 2006 Enterprise Edge
firewall (not in order):

Event Type: Error

Event Category: None
Event ID: 14018
Date: 5/13/2009

Description:
ISA Server failed to load the firewall policy configuration.

The Web filter Web Publishing Load Balancing Filter/Web filter

Description:
The ISA Server configuration agent was unable to upload the configuration to
the ISA Server services. This could be due to a corrupt configuration. The
ISA Server configuration agent is reverting the configuration back to the
last known configuration. The service that failed to load the configuration
is: fwsrv.

Time: 5:06:50 PM
User: N/A

Description:
Configuration changes saved to the Configuration Storage server could not be
applied to ISA Server services. After 5 attempts to apply the changes, ISA
Server postpones any new attempts to apply these changes, and will only renew
attempts when a new configuration is saved to the Configuration Storage
server. Recent alerts may indicate the reason for this failure.

Event Type: Information
Event Source: Microsoft ISA Server Control
Event Category: None
Event ID: 21211

Time: 5:06:58 PM
User: N/A
Computer: APLISA
Description:
A new configuration cannot be loaded, and configuration settings have been
successfully reverted to last known good values. Check previous error events
for possible reasons for the failure. The error description is: Some
configuration changes were not applied. See the Windows event viewer for more
details.



The problems started recently when I tried adding new publishing and access
rules and realised that the rules were not being imposed. Upon checking the
event logs, I found these errors. At that point I was still able to view my
Firewall Policies in ISA console and manage them. The following day however,
I could no longer view my firewall policies, with only an error popup
stating:
Refresh failed
Error code: 0xc0040305
Details: The string is empty or invalid. The error occurred on object
'xxxxxxx' of class 'Policy Rule' in the scope of array 'APLISA'.

I have tried rebooting and restarting ISA to no avail. I cannot view/manage
or implement new policies.
Apart from reinstalling ISA and recreating all the policies from scratch, what else can I do to resolve this?

Hi,

check ISA events help. It could be very useful: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/isa/2006/downloads/events.mspx
