Best Practices


  • Use Windows Server 2003 as the ISA Server operating system whenever possible.

  • Install Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 to take advantage of the increased security and functionality.

  • Install ISA Server 2004 Service Pack 1 for compatibility with Windows Server 2003 SP1 and for enhanced ISA features.

  • Use the Security Configuration Wizard to lock down the Windows Server 2003 operating system.

  • Install only those ISA Server 2004 and Windows Server 2003 features that are needed.

  • Build an ISA Server on a clean installation of the operating system.

  • Consider the use of ISA Hardware Solutions and/or third-party add-ons that increase the capabilities of ISA.

  • In general, deploy ISA Server 2004 as a workgroup member if it will be deployed in the DMZ of an existing firewall, and deploy it as a domain member if it will be deployed as a full-function firewall.

  • If a Firewall Client Installation Share is required, consider installing it on a File Server if possible.
