INTRODUCTION

When you install Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 or Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006, ISA Server Setup automatically generates log files that contain detailed installation information. This article describes the function of the Setup log files and describes how to view them.

MORE INFORMATION

The information in ISA Server Setup log files is based on Microsoft Windows Installer logging. Windows Installer writes log files containing actions and errors that occur when ISA Server Setup runs. You can view these log files in any text editor. The information that Windows Installer writes to these log files can help administrators troubleshoot a failed installation process. The following table summarizes the log files that are created when you install ISA Server.
