Neither - ISA is 32-bit only and cannot be installed on Windows 2008.

Thanks.  I would have had no idea it didn't run on Win 2008 at all.  I noticed the beta of Forefront Threat Management Gateway is out.  Can it be installed on  RODC or does it need a normal DC install?

Shouldn't matter whether you use the read-only on full dc as the RO aspect is for the directory services etc, not for the whole server. Personally though I stick it on  a 2008 member server rather than a DC.

I wanted to install as a member server but I read somewhere that ISA needed AD installed. Glad it doesn't.  Thanks for the info.

No sweat - and no, it doesn't need AD installed. For example, you might want to use the box in the dmz mighn't you?

However, if you want to control by AD groups etc then ISA needs ACCESS to the AD servers - but does not need to be installed ON a DC.

Member server will be perfect so I can control control access by groups and individuals.

Thanks again for the quick answer.
