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!

@Massimo You don't need administrative access to AD to change anything - boot from a DVD and you can directly write to the AD databases.
