Operational Readiness Checklists

The Operational Readiness checklists contain recommendations that you should consider and tasks that you should perform before deploying a BizTalk solution into production. These checklists include information for configuring prerequisite software, increasing availability, monitoring the BizTalk Server environment, and procedures for testing.

Because BizTalk Server maintains dependencies on so many other Microsoft technologies, you should complete the tasks for each dependent technology to help ensure that your production BizTalk Server environment runs smoothly.

Prerequisite software for the BizTalk Server application platform typically includes the following products:

  • The Windows operating system

  • SQL Server 2008 SP1 SP1 or SQL Server 2008 R2

  • BizTalk Server

  • Visual Studio 2010 (for development purposes, not at run time)

The BizTalk Server application platform may also require several of the following software components:

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)

  • Windows SharePoint® Services 2010

  • SharePoint Foundation 2010

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) (MOSS)

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with SP1 or SP2

  • Microsoft Office Excel 2010 or 2007

    BizTalk Server 2010 supports only the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office 2010.

  • SQL Server 2005 Notification Services

  • SQLXML 4.0 with Service Pack 1

  • .NET Framework 1.0

  • .NET Framework 2.0

  • .NET Framework 3.0

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 and .Net Framework 3.5 with Service Pack 1 (SP1)

  • Non-Microsoft components to enable functionality for certain BizTalk Server adapters.

For more information about the dependency software that is required for specific features of the BizTalk application platform for various Windows operating system versions, see the "Feature Dependency Matrix" section in the BizTalk Server 2010 installation and upgrade guide for the specific Windows operating system version. The BizTalk Server 2010 installation and upgrade guides are available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=152913.
