Step 1: Install BizTalk Server for the Tutorials
This topic was last updated on: September 23, 2009
Author’s Note: We recommend that you do a clean installation of BizTalk Server 2009. This helps ensure that you have all required features for the tutorial, so that you don’t run into issues later. If your computer already has BizTalk Server installed, you should ideally uninstall it and then install BizTalk Server 2009 on the computer. See the BizTalk Server 2009 Installation and Upgrade Guides (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=128383) for instructions on uninstalling BizTalk Server. While uninstalling, make sure that you remove all features and associated “footprints” from the computer. Otherwise you might encounter errors while configuring BizTalk Server on the computer. For example, if the previous installation of BizTalk Server involved use of a BAM Portal, Internet Information Services (IIS) might continue to have the BAM application and application pool. This might result in an error while configuring BizTalk Server. In summary, use a “clean” computer so that when you start working with the tutorials, you do not run into prevent issues caused by a faulty BizTalk Server installation or configuration.
