Creating a New Host in the BizTalk Administration Console

A BizTalk Host is a logical container for items such as adapter handlers, receive locations (including pipelines), and orchestrations. It is recommended that you use separate hosts for processing and receive/send, and that you use separate hosts for trusted and non-trusted items to facilitate implementing security measures and improve manageability of the hosts. You can install only one host on one BizTalk Server.

For information about the user rights required to create a new host, see the "User rights required to manage hosts" section of Required User Rights for Managing BizTalk Hosts and Host Instances.

For information about using WMI to create a new host, see MSBTS_Host Class.

Note  During setup only the BizTalk Application Users group is granted permissions on the STS_WebReceive host. If you add additional hosts, you must manually grant those groups the permission. By default, the IsolatedHostUsers group is granted permissions.

To create a new host

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
  2. In the Administration console, expand the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 (local) node.
  3. Right-click Hosts, select New, and then select Host.
  4. In the New Host dialog box, do the following:
    Use thisTo do this
    Name Type the name of the new host.
    Windows Group Type the name of the local or domain group for the host. When the first host instance is created for this host, SQL Server logons with the correct database privileges will be created in all SQL Servers where BizTalk databases are located.

    Note  All service accounts for the host instances must be members of this group.

    Note  It is recommended that you use a different Windows group for each host in a BizTalk group.

    Host Type From the drop-down list, select whether this host will run in-process or isolated. For more information about host types, see About Hosts.
    Host Tracking Select this check box if you want instances of this host to participate in the processing of health monitoring and business data that is tracked by BizTalk Server.
    Authentication Trusted Select this check box if the account under which the host runs should be trusted. For more information, see Authenticating the Sender of a Message.

    Note  If two hosts use the same service account for their host instances, they both must be either authentication trusted or non-trusted.

    Note  If two hosts use the same service account for their host instances, you cannot change whether they are authentication trusted. To change this setting, you must first change the service account used by one of these hosts.

    Default Host in the group Select this check box if you want this host to be the default host for the group. By marking this host as the default, operations such as enlisting orchestrations, and creating adapters and receive and send handlers will automatically use this host unless configured otherwise.

    Important  You cannot clear the Default Host in the group check box. You must first select a new default host.

  5. Click OK.
