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

Starting with BizTalk Server 2013 and new versions, ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit is integrated with the BizTalk Server setup. This topic provides instructions on how to install and configure ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit, and also includes a community-written link to upgrade the ESB Toolkit.

ImportantImportant
You must have BizTalk Server installed before you start installing the ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit.

Installing ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit

  1. On the BizTalk Server installation Start screen, click Install ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit.

  2. In License Agreement, accept the license agreement, and then select Next.

  3. In Component Installation, select the components you want to install, and then select Next.

  4. Review your component selection on the Summary screen, and then select Install.

  5. Select Finish to close the installation wizard.

Configuring ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit

ImportantImportant
You must configure BizTalk Server before configuring ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit.

  1. From the Start menu, expand All Programs, ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit, and then click ESB Configuration Tool.

    noteNote
    You must run the ESB Configuration Tool as an administrator.

  2. In the ESB Configuration Tool, from the left pane, select ESB Configuration. On the right pane, for Database Server, specify the database server name where the databases required for ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit are created.

  3. In the IIS Web Services box, specify the user credentials under which the applications required for ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit are created. Also specify the name of the website in IIS under which the applications are created.

  4. The BizTalk User Groups box lists the default user groups available for ESB configuration.

    ImportantImportant
    At this stage, you can click Apply Configuration towards the top of the ESB Configuration Tool to configure the ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit with the default settings. However, if you want to do a custom configuration, you can perform the remaining steps as well. In such a case, the values you specify in the subsequent steps take precedence over the default values.

  5. From the left pane, expand Exception Management, and do the following:

    • Click the Database node, and clear the Enable Exception Management Database check box if you do not want to configure an exception management database.

    • Similarly, on the Database node, select the Use Existing Database checkbox if you want to use an existing database instead of the configuration tool creating a new database. You can also specify the database server name and the database name.

    • On the Exception Web Services node, clear the Enable Exception Services check box if you do not want to configure these services. Alternatively, if you want to run these services under a different website, you can specify that here too.

  6. From the left pane, expand ESB Core Components, and do the following:

    • Click the Itinerary Database node, and clear the Itinerary Database check box if you do not want to configure an itinerary database.

    • Similarly, on the Itinerary Database node, select the Use Existing Database checkbox if you want to use an existing database instead of the configuration tool creating a new database. You can also specify the database server name and the database name.

    • On the Core Web Services node, clear the Enable Core Services check box if you do not want to configure these services. Alternatively, if you want to run these services under a different website, you can specify that here too.

  7. From the left pane, click Configuration to specify the SSO configuration. If you are installing and configuring the ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit in a single server environment, you should select File Configuration Source, which is the default selection. However, if you are setting up a multiple-machine deployment, you must select the SSO Configuration Source, and then provide the following values.

    • SSO Server: Name of the SSO server.

    • Configuration file: Click the ellipsis button (…), and then browse to the Esb.config file, which is included in the ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit

    • Application Name: Type a name for the SSO application. For example, ESB Toolkit.

    • Contact Information: Type the appropriate contact information in the following format: someone@example.com.

    • Administrator Group Name: Click the ellipsis button (…), and then browse to the appropriate name

    • User Group Name: Click the ellipsis button (…), and then browse to the appropriate name

  8. Click Apply Configuration. Open IIS and notice that the applications required for ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit are now created under the website you specified while configuring ​BizTalk ESB Toolkit.

  9. In the ESB Configuration Tool, on the ESB BizTalk Applications node, from the right pane, do the following:

    • Select the Enable ESB Core Components in BizTalk Server check box to create the application in the BizTalk Server Administration console. Select the Use Default Binding to bind this application to the default host. Select the Do not use Default Binding if you do not want to bind the application to the default host. In such a case, you must explicitly bind the application to a host, once the application is created.

    • Select the Enable ESB JMS/WMQ Components in BizTalk Server check box to create the application in the BizTalk Server Administration console. Select the Use Default Binding to bind this application to the default host. Select the Do not use Default Binding if you do not want to bind the application to the default host. In such a case, you must explicitly bind the application to a host, once the application is created.

    • Click Apply Configuration to create the applications you selected. Verify that the applications are created in the BizTalk Server Administration console.
