Hi all.

I am having a bit of a problem setting up logging from my ISA 2006 server to a SQL 2005 server. When I setup the monitoring to the SQL server in ISA and click test all works fine. As soon as I apply the settings I get the error:

Log Failure: The Microsoft Firewall was unable to connect to the sql database. The failure is due to error: 0x80040e4d

The SQL server resides on the same server as the ISA server and im not sure if this is what the problem is?? This error totally shuts down my firewall service and won't let it restart until I turn logging back the way it was. I have created all the tables and fields with the script provided with ISA 2006.

any ideas?
