When installing Isa 2006 on Server 2003 R2 the install fails on ADAM install. The error is: “setup failed to install ADAM”. This error pops up towards the end of the ISA install. This occurs if you have a server 2003 R2 with SP2 installed.
Work Around 1 – Copy the contents of the ISA 2006 disc on the local hard drive. Put the Server 2003 R2 disc in the ROM drive and launch the ISA 2006 install from the contents on the local hard drive. The install should complete with no errors this time.
Work Around 2 – Install Windows 2003 Server R2 with SP1 then install ISA 2006 then install SP2. Doing the installs in this order should avoid this ADAM error.
