backup configuration file of ISA 2006

Hi,
 
We have  used ISA2006 in VM  enviroment for a while, we have a clone of the live VM in place (in case the live one is dead). I also would like to back up the configuration files of the live ISA as the frequancy of the rule changing on the live ISA is much more often than the frequency of we doing the clone. So my questions would be:
1.) What and where to back up for the configuration files of the live ISA?
2.) Procedures to restore all the rules from  a clone if the live one is dead?
Any information and help would be much appreciated.

Regards

John

Open the ISA gui, right-click the node name in the left-hand column and select backup. Follow the wizard, give it a name and a location to be stored at and select ALL the options to be included. Select a good, long password and finish the wizard. Move the config to a secure location off the ISA server.

Restoration is the exact same process - just select the restore option.
