IIS on ISA – The One Exception!
In a recent blog post, Yuri Diogenes cautions us that we should not be installing IIS on ISA. I couldn’t agree with him more! There is, however, one exception – when it is installed from the factory on a Celestix MSA or WSA Series security appliance. Celestix installs and configures IIS on our ISA and IAG appliances to support our web-based remote management console. Under no circumstances should the IIS services on our appliances be used to support any other content or application. This configuration is definitely not supported and our support engineers will not be able to assist you if you attempt to do so!
