Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 Operations Guide

Welcome to the Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2009 Operations Guide. We created this guide to be a valuable resource for anyone involved in the implementation and administration of a BizTalk solution, particularly IT professionals.

This guide caters to BizTalk Server 2009 and provides operational readiness information to help you jumpstart with your BizTalk Server setup.

We organized the guide according to the functional aspects of planning, deploying, and managing a BizTalk Server installation. You can therefore read it according to these functional aspects. However, realizing that the checklists would be the most sought after information in the BizTalk Server 2009 Operations Guide, we have categorized all the checklists in the document in the following table for ease of accessibility.

Setting Up Your BizTalk Environment

Setting Up a High Availability and Disaster Recovery Environment

Monitoring, Testing, and Troubleshooting

Performance and Maintenance

Guidance based on real-world experience. The idea for the guide originated with Microsoft field representatives, partner organizations, and customers who plan, deploy, and maintain BizTalk Server installations. This group of IT professionals has accumulated extensive hands-on experience with a diverse range of BizTalk solutions. As they gained experience they created checklists, best practices, and presentations to guide future BizTalk Server operations. We collected and organized this information to create the guide.

Key portions of this guide are new; however, a considerable portion refers to BizTalk Server Help, white papers, Knowledge Base articles, and other sources. It has been carefully reviewed and vetted by experts from the community of BizTalk Server IT professionals and members of the product development team, whom we gratefully acknowledge at the end of this topic. We believe that the information presented here will help BizTalk Server users solve, and above all, avoid many of the common problems that can occur while deploying and maintaining a BizTalk Server installation.

This version of BizTalk Server 2009 Operations Guide includes some new content and checklists and contains updates to some existing topics. Also, some topics have been removed from this guide and are referenced from the BizTalk Server 2009 Help on MSDN.
