Given the experiences we have had configuring ISA 2004 to work with our SBS 2008 lab setups, there look to be a couple of possible methods to make things work.
The key to it all folks: Take a very close look at your SBS 2003 SP1/R2 Premium setups with ISA 2004 installed and configured properly.
Look at how the SSL setup works and just how the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard sets the ISA SSL bridging up.
From there, it is possible to see two possible ways of configuring ISA:
- Bridging using the SBS self-issued cert for RWW and an internal URL for RWW. ISA will bridge SSL for remote.mysbs2008.com to remote.mysbsdomain.local without the dreaded 500 errors.
- Bridging using the split DNS setup built into SBS 2008. ISA bridge Internet remote.mysbsdomain.com calls to remote.mysbsdomain.com on the SBS 2008 box.
But, since the current SBS 2003 SP1/R2 Premium setups with ISA 2004 use method 1, we will experiment with it to see if using the internal URL will break things on SBS 2008 ... a distinct possibility given the wizard's use of a split DNS setup.
We won't be able to do this until our lab setup has the SBS 2008 Win2K3 setup in place with ISA 2006 installed and waiting to be configured for use with the Springers' SBS 2008 network.
If the trial runs at setting up option 1 do not work, we will make sure to let you know...
