Remote administration is possible at the enterprise level and array level. Two computer sets are available with the installation, but by default they do not contain any ISA servers.
To manage any array server in the enterprise, you need to add the computers to be used for remote ISA Server administration to the Enterprise Remote Management Computers computer set as described next. You should be logged on as an Enterprise Administrator to complete the following steps.
In the scope pane of the ISA Server Management console, expand the Enterprise node, expand Enterprise Policies, and click the policy you want to configure.
In the task pane, click the Toolbox tab, click Network Objects, and expand Computer Sets.
Right-click Enterprise Remote Management Computers and select Properties.
On the General tab, click Add, and click Computer.
In the New Computer Rule Element dialog box, type the name and IP address of the computer you are adding, and then click OK.
Click OK again to close the dialog box.
Click Apply to successfully apply your changes, and then click OK.
For managing any ISA server at the array level only, follow the procedure just described, but use the Remote Management Computers computer set. This allows you to manage any ISA Server array from the ISA server, but you will only be able to monitor the array that owns the computer set.
After adding your ISA server to the appropriate computer set, ensuring that remote management is enabled in the system policy, and enabling Remote Desktop on the CSS, you can use your familiar remote administration tools, Terminal Services, and the ISA Management console to establish a remote connection.
If using the ISA Management console, keep in mind that you can connect to only one CSS at a time. If you use the Enterprise Connection Wizard to establish a second connection to another CSS, your first connection is dropped.
