ISA Server SE Appendix D: ISA Server Setup Log File

When you install ISA Server 2006, the Setup program automatically generates log files that contain detailed installation information. The information in the ISA Server 2006 Setup log file is based on Windows Installer logging. Windows Installer logs errors that occur when the ISA Server 2006 Setup program runs. Windows Installer also logs other information. You can view the log files in Notepad. The information that the installer writes to these logs can help administrators troubleshoot a failed installation.

When you install ISA Server 2006, the following log files shown in the following table are created in the %winddir%\temp directory:
