Configuring BizTalk Server on a Local (Single) Computer

You can configure BizTalk Server on a local (single) computer. The following figure shows a single computer configuration with all BizTalk Server-related components installed.

Configuring a single computer

To configure BizTalk Server on a single computer

  1. If the BizTalk Server Configuration Wizard is not started, browse to the BizTalk Server installation directory (the default location is <system drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server\) and double-click ConfigFramework.exe.
  2. On the Welcome to the Microsoft BizTalk Server Configuration Wizard page, click Next.
  3. On the Configuration options page, do the following:
    Use thisTo do this
    Do you want to create or join a BizTalk Server group? Select Create from the drop-down list to create the BizTalk group to use to administer all the BizTalk databases.

    Note  If you Join a BizTalk group, the BizTalk group and the Configuration database must already exist. In addition, you must be a member of the existing group.

    Important  If you performed a custom installation including Development-only or Administration Tools-only, you must Join rather than Create a BizTalk group during configuration.

    Select Join from the drop-down list to join a BizTalk group that already exists and of which you are a member. If you already have installed a Configuration database and plan to use that database, you must join the BizTalk group created with that database.

    Will this Single Sign-On server (SSO) hold the master secret key?Select Yes from the drop-down list if this is the first SSO server you configure in your SSO system.

    Select No from the drop-down list for subsequent SSO Servers in the SSO system. These servers are the processing servers and administration servers.

    Selecting Yes creates and configures the SSO Credential database. You must back up the master secret (an encryption key) on this secret server after completing configuration. You can also back up the master secret using the SSO command line utility, ssoconfig.exe located at \Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\.

     Security  Configure the master secret server as a stand-alone server. You must be an SSO administrator while performing this configuration task.

    Selecting No enables you to re-use existing data and configure a master secret server without re-creating the SSO database. If you do this, you must restore the master secret (an encryption key) that you backed up on this secret server after completing configuration. You can restore the master secret using the SSO command line utility, ssoconfig.exe. Click Next.

    Do you want to Create a BizTalk Host Application?

    You create a new BizTalk Host and host instance.

    Select Trusted from the drop-down list if you want to enable the host to submit messages into the MessageBox database with a sender security identifier (SSID) that is different from the Windows Security ID of the BTS Host Instance account.

    Caution  This is equivalent to creating a trust relationship between the servers.

    Select UnTrusted from the drop-down list if you want to pass the SSID of the BTS Host Instance account to the MessageBox database.

    Select No from the drop-down list if you do not want to create a BizTalk Host Application.

    Do you want to create a BizTalk Isolated Host Application?

    You create this host exclusively to support Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) adapters.

    Select Trusted from the drop-down list if you want to enable the host to submit messages into the MessageBox database with a sender security identifier (SSID) that is different from the Windows Security ID of the BTS Host Instance account.

    Caution  This is equivalent to creating a trust relationship between the servers.

    Select UnTrusted from the drop-down list if you want to pass the SSID of the BTS Host Instance account to the MessageBox database.

    Select No from the drop-down list if you do not want to create a BizTalk Isolated Host Application.

    Do you want to create an Analysis database drop-down list for tracking aggregations?

    This database stores both business and health monitoring OLAP cubes.

    Select Yes from the drop-down list if you have installed SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services Service Pack 3a (SP3a), and you want to track and store health monitoring OLAP cubes.

    Select No from the drop down list if you have not installed SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services SP3a.

    Do you want to use an Analysis Server for BAM aggregations?

    You use the SQL Server Analysis Services database to keep the aggregated historical data for Business Activities.

    Select Yes from the drop down list if you have installed SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services SP3a, and you want to create an Analysis Services database that keeps the aggregated data for Business Activities.

    Select No from the drop down list if you have not installed SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Analysis Services SP3a.

    Warning  You are not able to configure Analysis Services after initially configuring BizTalk Server. It must be done when you create the BizTalk group.

    Is a Rule Engine database already configured for the BizTalk Server group?

    Note  You only see this prompt if you select the option to Join a BizTalk Server Group.

    Select Yes from the drop-down list if a Rule Engine database already exists for this BizTalk group.

    Select No from the drop-down list to create the Rule Engine database if the initial installation of BizTalk Server did not include a Rule Engine database.

  4. Click Next.
  5. On the Windows accounts page, review the Microsoft Windows NT® Services (credentials). By default, the Windows accounts are local groups. Click Edit to make changes or click Next to continue.

    You can see a description of each group and its function in the panel below the configuration details.

    Note  You cannot specify the User Principal Name (UPN) format such as name@domain.company.com for an account name.

    Note  If you configure Business Activity Services (BAS), local groups are automatically added to the roles of BizTalk BAS Administrators, BizTalk BAS Managers, BizTalk BAS Users, and BizTalk BAS Web Services. You can use these local groups or you can replace them with domain groups.

    Note  You cannot use built-in groups, such as administrators, for any of the four groups previously described.

    Note  When configuring BAS, the Configuration Wizard prompts you for credentials if you have enabled Internet Explorer Enhanced Security. Enter the administrator's credentials on this computer.

  6. On the Addresses page, review the URL location, and click Edit to make changes or click Next to continue.

    If you are configuring BAS, the default site is BASSite. You can enter any valid URL for a local virtual directory that has Windows SharePoint Services extended on it, and change the site name. If you enter an IP address, a dialog appears prompting you to authenticate the user account and password. For more information about changing passwords in BAS, see Changing BAS Service Account Passwords.

    Note  If you want to use an existing site, it must be a BAS site.

  7. On the Configuration property values page, review the configuration names and click Edit to make changes, or click Next to continue.
  8. On the Database configurations page, select any item that has an insufficient configuration icon Insufficient Configuration Icon.
    1. Click Edit to configure your database connection settings.
    2. In the Server drop-down list, click Browse and select the SQL Server that will contain your database. By default, your database name already appears. Click OK. The insufficient icon disappears from the Database configurations page.
    3. Click Next to continue.

    Caution  After initially configuring databases, you are unable to change the database or database server names.

    Warning  You must enter the NetBIOS name (valid server name) when the Configuration Wizard prompts you to enter SQL Server Computer information. If you do not enter a valid server name, the Configuration Wizard does not validate the SQL Server and does not allow you to continue configuration.

  9. On the Windows Service Configurations page, click Next if there are no insufficient configuration icons. Otherwise, select any item that has an insufficient configuration icon.
    1. Click Edit to configure your Windows Service settings.
    2. In the User name drop-down list, click Browse. The Select User page appears.
    3. In the Look in drop-down list, select the domain and user that the service should run as and click OK.
    4. In the Password text box, enter the password for the user account you selected, and then click OK.
  10. On the BizTalk Messaging page, click Next.

    Important  Keep the default settings for the initial configuration of BizTalk Server unless you are configuring MSMQT on a server that also has MSMQ installed and enabled. For more information, see BizTalk Message Queuing Adapter (MSMQT) Configuration.

  11. On the Windows SharePoint Services Site Configuration page, perform the following tasks:

    Note  You only see this page if you are configuring Business Activity Services (BAS).

    Use thisTo do this
    TitleType a name for the Windows SharePoint Services site.
    DescriptionType a description for the site.
    Site e-mailType an e-mail address for the site owner. The email address must be valid.
  12. Click Next.
  13. On the Summary page, review the components to be configured, click Save to save the configuration XML, and then click Next. (If you do not click Save, you do not back up your system configuration for use later.) Configuration begins as shown on the Configuration Progress page.

    Note  When configuring BizTalk Server in Windows Server 2003, you must comply with the prompt to enter your username and password if you have not removed Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration. Type your username and password to continue.

  14. On the Configuration completed page, click Logfile to view the log file, and then click Finish.

Important  When you complete BizTalk Server configuration, you must back up the master secret (an encryption key) on the master secret server. If you do not do this, you risk losing data. For more information see, Backing Up the Master Secret.

Important  When you complete BizTalk Server configuration, you must log off BizTalk BAS Administrators, BizTalk BAS Managers, BizTalk BAS Users, and BizTalk BAS Web Services groups and then log on again in order to access some parts of the BAS site.
