You tried to log on tge dc or the isa server?

Is the isa server domain joined?

By 'entry' do you mean the computer account object?

Domain join process creates the computer object or you pre stage it i.e create it and then join the server to the domain

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

DNS records are completely seperate from AD computer accounts. You can have DNS records for Linux, Unix, Mac, Windows workgroup, Cisco devices. . . If you create a computer account for your ISA server without joining the ISA server to the domain, there will be no point, as it's not the NAME that's important, but the SID of the computer account. The easiest method would be to simply join the server to the domain.
If you are concerned about the DNS entry, then delete the current one and then re-create a static entry, or preferably let the domain join process create a dynamic DNS record for the server.

What version of ISA are you running, and on what OS?
Unless you have scripts running, the computer account should appear in the "computers" OU.
You cannot create the account manually - as mentioned before it's the SID, not just the name, that's vital.
Perhaps re-check your ISA server - look at the computer properties and ensure that the server name is correct.

Please could you check that your server name matches the AD account name.
