ISA Firewall Issue
Posted on 2010-11-14
I've run into an issue that's been ongoing for the past month or so, the firewall on my ISA server keeps stopping every few days, which then blocks my remote access to it and also causes all my OWA and POP3 users to lose connectivity.
it happens after I receive the following error:
The ISA Server Web filter failed to log information to MSDE Database ISALOG_20101114_WEB_000 in path C:\Program Files\Microsoft ISA Server\ISALogs. The MSDE Error description is: Unspecified error
. The problem may be resolved by restarting the MSSQL$MSFW service.
once i start the firewall, all gets back to normal.
It's currently logging to a MSDE database, I have read a couple of things and they mentioned I should rather log to a W3C DB and also reduce the number of active logs.
Any ideas on the above? This is a live system and I cant have any downtime so, experimenting is not really an option.
