My particular problem is Microsoft ISA Server 2006 installation. During the process at the point where I’m supposed to create a connection to the configuration Storage server the installation breaks and I get only this warning:
“Microsoft ISA Server 2006 – Installation Wizard
A connection to the specified configuration Storage server could not be established. This may be because the local computer needs to be added to the Managed ISA Servers computer set.
Error code = 0x8007203a
Error description = The server is not operational
What could possibly be causing this type of behavior?
Thank you for your support.
Microsoft ISA Server 2006 installation
There is a tool that called IDP that comes with windows support tools. So install the support tools on the isaserver2.contoso.com, then you have to open the soft IDP and connect to isaserver1.contoso.com(CSS server) on the port 2172 check a box “ssl”. If this is failed then try to connect on the port 2171 without ssl.
If this is failed also then we can find out that it causing by certificates and go to next solve part. The connectivity in two nodes. We can start with name resolution when checking the connectivity. Ping the isaserver1.contoso.com from the isaserver2.contoso.com and see if the name gets resolved to the ip address of isaserver1.contoso.com.
I removed the entry in host file for isaserver1.contoso.com on isaserver2.contoso.com so I can got host name not found as result of the ping. Now after putting this entry in the host file isaserver2.com , was able to join to the node to array and also complete the installation.
