Migrate ISA 2006 logs to MS SQL 2000 using DTS

I'm trying to figure out a way to copy the ISA 2006 MDSE database to MS SQL server 2000 using DTS. I want to maintain the MSDE tables in ISA 2006 server and schedule daily DTS job to copy the MSDE enytries to another server hosting MS SQL server 2000 standard edition. I know  I can configure ISA 2006 to connect directly to the SQL 2000 but in this case I will loose some important features such as live monitoring and scheduled reporting.

I tried to connect remotely using OSQL -E -S myserver\MSFW and also using SQL 2000 Enterprise Manager but both attempts failed. I even opened all ports in ISA but still with no success.


Have any one tried this scenario before ?

It is designed to be that way.  This probably not only keeps you from connecting with the Enterprise Manager but also connecting from another database to be able to pull the data from it.
Troubleshooting Logging
This is the relevant quote from that link:
Cannot Connect to MSDE Database Remotely
Problem: Attempting to connect remotely to the MSDE database located on the ISA Server computer fails.
Cause: The MSDE instance used by ISA Server has network protocols disabled. Therefore, you cannot connect to it remotely. You can only connect using the SQL Enterprise Manager when Enterprise Manager is installed on the ISA Server computer.
Solution: Use the SQL Enterprise Manager installed on the ISA Server computer to connect to the MSDE database.

Dear pwindell,
Thanks for the comments. if I install the SQL Enterprise manager on the ISA server, how do I create a DTS to read the MSDE database and convert it to SQL database given that the MSDE database name is chaning every day?

I was thinking some more.
You probably know a lot more about SQL Server than I do,...but if you load the Enterprise Manager on the ISA and open the DB Engine,...then maybe you can enable the "features" than MS left disabled.  I don't know for sure,...but it is just a thought.
