Using ISA caching for fast disk access in SBS 2003 [Windows Small Buisness Server 2003 Best Practices book excerpt]

g’day mates – happy Sunday to you!

I am the author of the SBS 2003 best practices book and I like to hold daily book readings. So today – it’s we discuss caching in ISA.

          Fast Web Access. This is a cool feature in ISA Server that allows for LAN-speed retrieval of frequently accessed Web sites “cached” on the server machine. When you install ISA Server 2000 on SBS 2003 (which I discuss in a moment), you will answer a setup wizard page (Figure 13­6) whereby you define the disk space allocated to the caching function.

Figure 13-6

By default, when installing ISA Server 2000, the caching directory selected will NOT be the system drive.
