BizTalk Server 2010 - Configuration Wizard , Group Configuration Errors

BizTalk Server 2010 - Configuration Wizard , Group Configuration Errors

Hello all;


According to my technical experience about BizTalk Server 2010 configuration and integration , BizTalk server is such a sensitive product. Communication between BizTalk and SQL server depends on many things protocols/ports.

1.MS DTC
2.Firewall Inbound and Outbound Rules
3.SQL server default or customized ports
4.SQL Server Analysis service port
5.SQL Server TCP/IP configuration
6. WMI

Today , I had a nice experience about configuring Biztalk server and SQL Server communication in a very secured and hardened network . Because of security configuration deployed via gpo`s , all firewalls were active and nearly all ports were disabled in both direction.

Anyway , I begun to configure BizTalk via Conf. Wizard. 

After Enterprise SSO , while I was at group configuration , conf. wizard started to give errors. You know there is huge error log you need to investigate :( After a couple of hours later, I found  from the error log  that the problem was WMI ! 

In windows firewall because of security scripts WMI communications were disabled in both direction. I fixed the needed configuration of WMI at firewall and voila. Groups are configured successfully.

After group configuration , BizTalk Runtime give some MSDTC related  errors. I double checked the MSDTC via dtcping and dtctester tools and fix em , again firewall.










I think firewall is one of most import aspect while configuring BizTalk Server.


Thank you for reading this post.Have a nice work.
