Ways to Export ISA Rules to Excel?



Hello Alyss,

It is common for system administrators to back up ISA rules for reference.

Below is a summarized tutorial using ISA Server 2004, Windows 7  on the client side and Excel 2007. Google and download ISAInfo2XLS.hta (we will need this app later on).

·         On the 2004 server, open the ISA management console, expand the server and select “Firewall policy”.

·         Right-click “firewall policy” and select “Export”

·         Save in a location you are unlikely to forget.

·         Import the files into the ISAInfo2XLS.hta app and expand the firewall policy tab and click “Array Rules.” Then copy all data into a text file.

·         Navigate to MS Excel and select the file type to all, locate your text file and click ok.

·         The text import wizard will run. See below.


·         Select others, type “|”

·         Click finish and your file will be generated

You should do the same for all other ISA server policies.
