Hi there

My question has 2 parts.....

Firstly, is it possible to restore an ISA server in a DRP situation by just using the xml file generated by the backup option in the ISA 2004 mmc? We are trying to do so, and it keeps giving us a password error upon trying to restore. We have triple-verified that we are putting the correct password.

If this is not the correct way to do a DRP restore of ISA 2004, what is the best practice method of doing so?

Yes, it is the correct way. The DR box must be at the same version of OS and service pack as must the ISa server service and its service pack. I'll assume that you are in the right case (not upper/lower case :))

We realised that the ISA was on SP1 on the Production box. Once we appied the SP1 on the DR box we were able to extract the xml file. We encoutered further problems because we didnt load Websense on the DR box. For future  DR tests, we will include a backup of the ISA install folder, thus we will be able to restore the websense plugin......

Thanks for the help.
