  • Monitoring applications, such as Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) agent, use ISA Server files and may interfere with ISA Server setup and removal. To avoid issues, stop these applications before taking any of the following actions:
    • Repair or modify
    • Uninstall
    • Install or uninstall of a service pack or hotfix
    • Upgrade
  • Before removing ISA Server, be sure to close ISA Server Management and ISA Server Performance Monitor.
  • Before removing an ISA Server computer configured as the Configuration Storage server, you must ensure that all changes have replicated to the replica Configuration Storage server, or the configuration changes will be lost.
  • If you cannot connect to the Configuration Storage server used by the array member when you uninstall ISA Server services, any configuration information stored there will not be deleted.
  • The array is deleted when you uninstall the last array member.
  • Uninstall one array member at a time.
  • When you configure ISA Server, some Routing and Remote Access settings may be modified. When you uninstall ISA Server, the Routing and Remote Access configuration is reconfigured as follows:
    • The Routing and Remote Access service is disabled.
    • The remote access policy configured by ISA Server is deleted.
    • Routing and Remote Access is reset to its default settings and disabled. To configure Routing and Remote Access, use the Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access Wizard, accessible from the Routing and Remote Access snap-in.
  • When you configure Integrated NLB mode, Windows Server 2003 Network Load Balancing (NLB) settings are modified. When you uninstall ISA Server, the NLB configuration is reconfigured as follows:
    • The network adapters are still bound to NLB.
    • ISA Server does not uninstall the NLB network service, even if it was installed by ISA Server.
