Checklist: Performing Daily Maintenance Checks

This topic describes some of the items that you should check on a daily basis to help monitor the status of a BizTalk Server system. You must perform most of these checks consistently and archive the results over a period of time to obtain the greatest benefit. We recommend that you automate routine maintenance checks whenever possible. Tools such as MOM 2005 and Operations Manager 2007 provide the specialized features that you need to monitor a BizTalk Server system.

Steps Reference

Check for failed disks in the hardware RAID (reliability check).

"View Disk Properties" in the Windows Server 2003 product Help at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=104161

Check for messages requiring manual intervention such as suspended messages (reliability check).

For information about manually checking for suspended messages see "Investigating Orchestration, Port, and Message Failures" in BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Help at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=104169

For information about performing automated monitoring using Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 see "Suspended Message Alerts" at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=105059

Check the event logs for errors and warnings (administration check).

BizTalk Server 2006 R2 errors and warning events are saved in the application log. The event source is "BizTalk Server 2006". We recommend that you monitor the event log using an automated solution such as Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. For more information, see Monitoring with MOM 2005 or Operations Manager 2007.
