MORE INFORMATION

You can use the SPCheck tool to determine the service pack level of the following ISA Server components:
  • ISA Management
  • ISA Server services (including Firewall client files)
  • ISA Server H.323 Gatekeeper Service
  • ISA Server H.323 Gatekeeper Administration Tool
  • ISA Server Message Screener
  • Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
To use the SPCheck tool on ISA Server, follow these steps:
  1. Create an environmental variable called "isa_dir" that defines the folder that ISA Server is installed in on the target server. To do so on a Windows 2000-based server:
    1. Log on to the server by using the local Administrator account.
    2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Environmental Variables.
    4. Under User variables for Administrator, click New.
    5. In the Variable Name box, type isa_dir.
    6. In the Variable Value box, type the full path to the folder where ISA Server is installed on the server. For example, type c:\program files\microsoft isa server.
    7. Click OK on all of the dialog boxes that were opened during this procedure.
  2. Copy Spcheck.exe and Spcheck.ini to any folder on the server, and then run Spcheck.exe.
  3. Use Notepad to examine the Spcheck.rpt report file that is generated. For additional information about how to interpret the report file, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
