Deleting a Host in the BizTalk Administration Console

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

You can delete a host only in the following circumstances:

  • It is not the default host.
  • It is not the only host that is hosting tracking.
  • It is not hosting any adapter handlers.
  • It has no enlisted orchestrations.
  • There are no started instances of the host.

Important  You must be a member of the Administrators Windows group on the local runtime computer to delete a host that contains one or more host instances. If you are not an administrator, you will not be able to delete the host. For more information, see Troubleshooting BizTalk Server Administration.
