The FPCArray object defines a single ISA Server array, and its properties provide access to the array-level configuration settings in the hierarchy of administration COM objects for the ISA Server computers associated with it. Each ISA Server computer is associated with a single array.
This object is an element of the FPCArrays collection.
Click here to see the ISA Server object hierarchy.
In ISA Server Standard Edition, there is only one FPCArray object in the FPCArrays collection, and it provides access to the registry-based configuration settings of only a single ISA Server computer.
In ISA Server Enterprise Edition, multiple ISA Server computers can be associated with a single array, and additional arrays can be created using the Add method of the FPCArrays collection. The configuration settings for the arrays in an enterprise are stored on a Configuration Storage server. A group of ISA Server computers that are associated with the same array can be managed as a single, logical entity and can provide distributed caching, load balancing, and fault tolerance.
The way in which an FPCArray object is retrieved depends on the edition of ISA Server that is installed on the computer on which the code is being executed and on the components of ISA Server that are installed and running on it. For information about retrieving an FPCArray object after creating the root object, see Retrieving an Array Object.
For examples that use the FPCArray object, see ISA Server Administration Scripting.
InheritanceThis object inherits from the FPCPersist object, which contains methods and properties related to the persistent storage of an object's data. They include methods for exporting the object's data to and importing it from an XML document.
The FPCArray object defines the following methods.

|Name||Gets or sets the name of the array.|
|NetworkConfiguration||Gets an FPCNetworkConfiguration object that holds all the network configuration settings for the array.|
|NetworkTemplateUsed||Gets an FPCRef object that references the FPCNetworkTemplate object defining the network template used by the array.|
|PolicyAssignment||Gets an FPCPolicyAssignment object that specifies the enterprise policy assigned to the array and some configuration settings that determine how the enterprise policy is applied in the array (available only in Enterprise Edition).|
|Reports||Gets an FPCReports object that holds the ready reports, report jobs, and summary report configuration for the array.|
|RuleElements||Gets an FPCRuleElements object that provides access to collections of rule elements for the array.|
|Servers||Gets an FPCServers collection that contains objects representing all the ISA Server computers in the array.|
|SessionsMonitors||Gets an FPCSessionsMonitors object that provides access to the firewall and the ISA Server Web proxy session monitors for the array.|
|SystemPolicy||Gets an FPCSystemPolicy object that holds the system policy information for the array.|
|Type||Gets a value from the FpcArrayType enumerated type that indicates whether the array consists of a single ISA Server computer or may contain multiple servers.|
|UseComputerAccountForIntraArrayAuthentication||Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether the computer accounts of the array members will be used for authenticating intra-array communication (available only in Enterprise Edition).|
|CancelWaitForChanges||Cancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
|CanImport||Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the object's properties can be imported from the specified XML document.|
|Export||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to the specified XML document.|
|ExportToFile||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to the specified XML file.|
|GetServiceRestartMask||Retrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.|
|Import||Recursively copies the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from the specified XML document to persistent storage.|
|ImportFromFile||Recursively copies the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from the specified XML file to persistent storage.|
|LoadDocProperties||Provides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.|
|Refresh||Recursively reads the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.|
|Save||Recursively writes the current values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to persistent storage.|
|WaitForChanges||Registers to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
