    Backing up an ISA Server

    This may be the wrong place to post it, but any way here goes.

    I have just spent the last 2 days rebuilding out backup server as we purchased some 1tb disks to replace our 250's in out SAN.

    I have only just thought of backing up the ISA server, never has been done before but i want to have at least one copy of it backed up.

    Could somebody point me in the right direction as i assume i will need to set up some ISA rules or something to allow Backup Exec (12) to have aceess to the machine itself.

    Any help apreciated

    Thanks

    Toby

    Yep, you can do it using a script it will dump the config to a file on the server. Then use the command features in backup exec to run the script just before the backup, then backup the files it dumps.

    Will post it soon

    Here we are:

    Create a VBS file using this code

    Code:
    Dim fileName
    Dim WSHNetwork
    Dim shareName: shareName = WScript.Arguments(0)
    Dim xmldom : set xmldom = CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument")
    Dim fpc : set fpc = WScript.CreateObject("Fpc.Root")
    Dim array : set array = fpc.GetContainingArray
    set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    fileName=shareName & "\" & WSHNetwork.ComputerName & "-" & _
    Month(Now) & "-" & Day(Now) & "-" & Year(Now) & ".xml"
    array.Export xmldom, 0
    xmldom.save(fileName)
    run this command in the backup exec in the pre command area, obviously you will need to change this to suit your server.

    Cscript "C:\ISA_Backups\Backup\ISA2006Back.vbs" "C:\ISA_Backups\ISA"

    Then backup the files in this location

    this might just be me being stupid,

    but i cannot seem to select the drives or things like that from the backup selection.

    I had to manually install the agent as it wouldn't allow me to remotely install it, do i have to enable something on the ISA to allow the connections from the backup Exec?

    Thanks

    ISA firewall will be blocking it. Create an access rule the ISA can communicate with the backup exec server on all ports.
