I currently have a single ISA 2006 stardard running I have intalled ISA 2006 Enterprise on a new box and have created an Array joined the ISA 2006 Ent to the storage configration manager.  I have tried to import the configuration from the ISA 2006 Standard to the ISA 2006 Enterprise but it says I can not import configs from STD editon to ENT or visa versa.  Is there a way the I can import all the configs from the std editon box to the new ent edition.  I wouldn't want to manually configure the new box with all those policies.

No choice - the formats are different within the rule base, there is no supprted method - sorry.

Really, wow!

I would have to manually re-create all the policies and rules and configs over?

As you will have seen by now, the firewall policy is totally different. you cannot import the standard config.

Hey Lcollado,

I have searched before and found this workaround but didn't try it yet so please try it and feed me back by the result  but be careful and  backup your ISA Server configuration before trying out the following workaround:

Righ click the XML file and edit it then change fpc4:Edition line from:

<fpc4:Edition dt:dt="int">16</fpc4:Edition>

TO

<fpc4:Edition dt:dt="int">32</fpc4:Edition>

After that save it and try to import it again to ISA Server 2006 Enterprise Edition

Note:You should see the above line near the top of the XML file.

Regards,
MKhairy

Mkhairy; Keith,
thank you for your feed back.  MKhairy  it did not work so I'm redoing all the policies manually.

Last time - you cannot do this. Changing from a standard edition to an Enterprise edition is a no-go.
