DELETE Create the Virtual Machines

[Unless specifically noted, the content in this topic applies to BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2.]

noteNote
The content in this topic is specific to the BizTalk Server 2013 R2 - Beta release.

In this topic, you create two BizTalk Server virtual machines and a SQL Server 2012 virtual machine. These virtual machines are part of a BizTalk Group. When complete, you have all the servers ready to configure in less than an hour. These steps assume you already have a domain. The domain must be created before creating the virtual machines.

To create a BizTalk Group, a domain account is required. This domain account runs the BizTalk services that connect to the SQL Server.

Create the BizTalk virtual machines

The first step is to create two individual BizTalk Server virtual machines in Windows Azure. To create the individual BizTalk Server virtual machines, refer to the following link:

Create a BizTalk Virtual Machine in Windows Azure

When creating the virtual machines, name them similar to the following:

 

BTS-Test1

This BizTalk Server virtual machine is the Master. It creates the group and hosts the SSO master secret.

BTS-Test2

This BizTalk Server virtual machine joins the existing group.

When the virtual machines are created, BizTalk Server is installed and ready to be configured. Additional requirements, including Internet Information Services (IIS) and MS Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) are also installed and ready to use.

noteNote
The BizTalk virtual machine automatically includes SQL Server. This topic includes the steps to create a virtual machine dedicated to SQL Server. Therefore, SQL Server can be uninstalled on the BizTalk virtual machines.

Create a SQL Server virtual machine

The next step is to create the SQL Server 2012 virtual machine in Windows Azure. A BizTalk virtual machine automatically includes SQL Server. This topic includes the steps to create a virtual machine dedicated to SQL Server. To create the SQL Server virtual machine, refer to the following link:

Provisioning a SQL Server Virtual Machine on Windows Azure

When the virtual machine is created, SQL Server is installed. Additional requirements, including the Default Instance and MS Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) are also installed and ready to use.
