Dear All,
We have a ISA 2004 serving the purpose of firewall as well as proxy server for our enterprise. There are many rules defined as per the requirement. This ISA is talking to Active Directory Domain where we create the user accounts for the users need internet access.
We have another Windows 2003 Active Directory domain which is used for user login and GPO's throughout enterprise. We need to integrate the ISA server with this domain as the users have to remember 2 passwords as of now.
Kindly help me with the pre-requisites, process of migrating the ISA server from existing Domain to new Domain with all the existing ISA rules and policies. Also the method to minimize the downtime during this period.

Thanks and Regards,

    There is no "migration".   You either fix all the rules after the move or you build from scratch.

    I would recommend backing up the Configuration to an XML file,...uninstall ISA,...unjoin the machine,...then join the machine to the new Domain,...install ISA,....import the config back in.
