How come I cannot create a new protocol definition on my ISA Server?

When I double click on protocol definitions, I get list and only able to configure a protocol but then the ones that are in here are the default http, Https, ftp ect. and will not allow me to edit them.

I tried to right click on the protocol definition in the tree and looked for new like the Help says but all it get view capabilty. Sounds like permision issue. I am logged on as domain administrator. I can create rules and sites and destination sets, client sets ect. But I can create a new protocol.

Help.
Thanks
Jeff

I am missing it.  I have ISA 2000. I am in the ISA Management. I look at the tree on the left.  I click once on the protocol definitions they display to the right. There is only one icon below the listing of protocols called configure a protocol definition.  If i right click on the protocol definition in the tree window there is suppose to be a NEW in the menu but all I get is View, refresh and export.

 The Evil-ution of Network Security Threats

What are the hacks that forever changed the security industry? To answer that question, we created an exciting new eBook that takes you on a trip through hacking history. It explores the top hacks from the 80s to 2010s, why they mattered, and how the security industry responded.

 
Keith AlabasterCommented:
Oops, my error. This was for ISA2004/2006.

For ISA2000, it is as follows...

Open the gui,
expand servers and arrays,
expand Policy Elements
Here you will see Protocol defintions.

Hopefully this is what you are after :)

PS Right-click protocol definitions and select new - definition which will kick the wizard running.

Yes, here lies my problem. I do not have a NEW to select.  There is none. Just view, refresh, export and help.

Sorry Splunker; misrad the question.

Yes, it sounds like permissions. What services are running the ISA server? Admin account? local admin admin account? System?

PS. Please note I have refunded the points to you from your other question on this topic.

Thanks I didn't know how to change the question title because I left out the ISA Server part. So I just created new one.

I assume you are refering to the Microsoft ISA server control service   -  System account.

Its funny though I can create sites, rules, protocol rules, destination sets, client sets ect.   Just cant create protocol definitions.

What service pack are you running? it may be worthwhile reinstalling the latest version in case one of the dll's has become corrupted.

Did this box ever belong in an ISA array?

SplunkerAuthor Commented:
Well thats what I wondering if need to install service packs. I don't think I have any service packs installed on it all.  So I would have to intall Service pack 1, then Feature pack 1 - (Do i have to really install FP?)  Then install SP2


No it has never belonged to an ISA Array

Keith AlabasterCommented:
I have never bothered with the feature packs but I ALWAYS install the SP's. Plus the MS updates that go with them.

SplunkerAuthor Commented:
I was wondering because its says that service pack 2 has fixes for the feature pack 1 and therefore feature pack should be install first.

Keith AlabasterCommented:
It may be that FP1 was installed as part of my downloads. I use the automatic updates I certainly didn't install FP1 manually.

Okay here is something I just thought of, that could be the reason why the New isn't there correct me if I am wrong. If I am right I refer you to my other question then why would https://www.netsmemberservices.com:8443 work if i am not using it as a firewall.


Here is my thought.

I am trying to remember when we set the ISA up, Doesnt it give you the option for using ISA in a Firewall more or cache mode? Or both?

We selected cache mode only. If this is case there would be no need to create protocol definitions? With specified ports?

Let me know if I am totally wrong.

If I am wrong, I left a message on my other question about wether or not those scripts and gui tools will work on isa server 2000

Keith AlabasterCommented:
Really well done. I should have thought of it but totally missed it.

Of course it would be locked down as you are not able o run other than the standard filters in caching mode. I feel a real idiot for this one.

Nice work.
Regards
Keith
