Starting a Host Instance in the BizTalk Administration Console
Administrators use the BizTalk Administration console or WMI to start host instances.
For information about the user rights required to start a host instance, see the "User rights required to manage host instances" section of Required User Rights for Managing BizTalk Hosts and Host Instances.
For information about using WMI to start a host instance, see MSBTS_HostInstance (WMI).
After you add or stop a host instance, you must start it so that it is running and routing messages to the MessageBox databases.
Important The service account that you specify for a host instance should be a member of the Windows group for the associated host. Otherwise, the host instance may run into permission problems or authentication issues at run time. In addition, for security reasons, the account should have minimum privileges because orchestrations hosted by the host instance might execute potentially malicious custom code.
To start a host instance
- Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
- In the Administration console, expand the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 (local) node, double-click Hosts, and then click the host.
- In the results pane, right-click the host instance, and click Start.
The status of the host instance changes to Start pending. After the host instance initiates, the status changes to Running.
After you start a host instance, you can stop it to prevent it from routing messages to the MessageBox database. You must stop a host instance before you can remove BizTalk Server from a given computer. For information about stopping a host instance, see Stopping a Host Instance in the BizTalk Administration Console.
