Hi,

Well, Check ISA event log and also Windows event log and let us know what do you fine there?

Also, make sure that your clients and ISA server DNS setting is fine! ISA server internal NIC should be pointing to your local DNS which is hodling your DC records, because authentication comes from there!.

It would be better if you post ipconfig /all results at ISA machine.

You could use a solid-state-disk as harddisk:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-state_drive

- Faster start-up because no spin-up is required.
- Fast random access because there is no read/write head[13] Low read latency times for RAM drives.[14] In applications where hard -disk seeks are the limiting factor, this results in faster boot and application launch times (see Amdahl's law).[15]
- Consistent read performance because physical location of data is irrelevant for SSDs.[16]
- File fragmentation has negligible effect.

Hi,

Sorry for the late response.

Well it seems like you are having problem with connectivity verifiers, save your settings by exporting into xml file, and then remove "internet Verifier 1" and "internet Verifier 2" and check if that resolves your problem. Also make sure that you have all latest Service packs/patches installed on ISA machine from Microsoft update site.
