SP1 upgrade of EMS: points to wrong configuration storage server


  • When I start TMG SP1 upgrade of EMS it points the configuration storage server to the first array member, and of course cannot connect. The selection cannot be changed as it is greyed out. Only option is to cancel.

    In TMG MMC configuration storage server is EMS.

    The setup is healthy and has been running fine for more than 6 months.

  • I might add that SP1 setup on array servers points correctly to EMS.

  • Can you let me know the Status of ISASTGCTRL Service on all Array Members and also on EMS?

    ISASTGCTRL service is disabled on array members, running on EMS.

    I did follow the install guide.

    Which part do you consider relevant for my problem?

  • Hello Oletho,

    Was the first array member ever an EMS for the TMG Enterprise (backup EMS, perhaps)? If not, could you run the SP1 installation on the EMS server again and provide the output from the Setup log(s).

    No, the install sequence was servername TMG (EMS) then array members TMG1 and TMG2.

    SP1 does not get as far as to write to the logs, at least not \windows\temp\isaxxx.log - I did not find any other logfile regarding TMG setup.

    But I found something interesting in the setup logs from the initial install. It seems that at first the server was named TMG1 (same name as later installed array member), and at some point changed to TMG.

    Now searching registry for TMG1 one hit was interesting. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fpc\ADAMStorageServer had a value of tmg1.our.domain

    After changing that to tmg.our.domain the SP1 install correctly suggests EMS as configuration storage.

    I cannot finish the SP1 install as our service window is during the upcoming weekend. I cross my fingers that this single registry entry will do the trick.

    Any advice is welcome.
