ISA 2004 build question.

Hello,

Is it ok to build an ISA 2004 box by itself then add it to the domain later or should I add it to the domain 1st then install ISA?  I wanted to get a bunch of these built at my office for multiple locations and then delply them.

Personally I build them with the OS then add them on the domain, ship to site first then add ISA. Had too many issues with people supplying incorrect configuration information regarding ip's etc in the past for remote offices/locations. However, for clients, I install ISA first (on a workgroup) based upon their ip addressing scheme in  a test environment. I ALWAYS install a rule that allows me to RDP into the ISA server so that I can configure remotely to add to the domain as necessary. If I have access to the external router then I can set up the necessary external forwarding rule to the ISA external NIC; if I don't have that access, the client has to set that rule up for me. Once connected, I can add the box to the domain myself but remotely
