ISA 2004 firewall service can't start

Post by TWFyY2 » Fri, 22 Apr 2005 19:32:04


Can anyone tell me why ISA firewall service sometimes doesn't start at boot
of Windows 2003? I have to start it manually.
Thank you.

What do you find in the System and Application event logs?
That's the first place to go.

In the System log I've found the following messages (translated from italian,
therefore approximately):

"Timeout (30000 milliseconds) during the wait for the connection to the
service Microsoft ISA Server Control. "

"The service Microsoft ISA Server Control was not started for the following
mistake: The service did not answer to the request of start or monitor in the
time expected. "

"The service Microsoft ISA Server Job Scheduler depends from the service
Microsoft ISA Server Control that was not started for the following mistake:
The service did not answer to the request of start or monitor in the time
expected. "

"The service Microsoft Firewall depends from the service Microsoft ISA
Server Control that was not started for the following mistake: The service
did not answer to the request of start or monitor in the time expected. "

Thank you.

What non-ISA error events do you find?
ISA has dependencies on networking services as well...

Noone, but I found out that starting Microsoft Firewall service (wspsrv.exe)
under Local System account instead of NTAUTHORITY\NetworkService (default)
seems to work... Can it be a solution?

Nope - this is an unsupported configuration.
If this is the case, then the Security log should have had some "audit failed" errors.
What changes have you made (service packs, etc.)

In fact it is not that the cause of the fault, because it still happens.
Windows 2003 server is automatically updated, and ISA server 2004 is updated
to the Service Pack 1.

There is a way to increase the loading time-out of the service? It seems to
be that, the problem...
