comment MS SQL Server 2000 IPv6
... and SQL 2005 included a major redesign of connectivity, so that's not just Microsoft not listing it as supported, they actually added the functionality then.

comment ISA 2006 can run on Windows Server 2008?
This is going to create an interesting situation for Microsoft's support lifecycle. Windows 2003 End of Life is 14 July 2015; ISA 2006 End of Life is 10 January 2017, so you have a supported product, but no supported OS to run it on!
