Service Pack and Cumulative Update list for BizTalk Server

As of December 2010, BizTalk Server has moved towards the Cumulative Update model for BizTalk Server 2009 and BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0.

Newly Released

2564013  FIX: A hotfix is available that provides additional Delivery Mode properties for the Minimal Lower Layer Protocol send and receive adapters in BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 in a BizTalk Server 2010 environment.

This hotfix adds the option to use Transport Acknowledgements instead of Application Acknowledgements to HL7. When the hotfix is installed, the Use MLLP Transport Acknowledgement property is exposed in the MLLP Transport Properties. When this property is set to True, there is a significant performance improvement when processing documents.

A fix has been released to address the 0x80131700 error code that you might get when starting or configuring the Enterprise Single Sign-On Service (ENTSSO).

To resolve this issue, install the 2252691 fix-- Update for Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On v4 (KB2252691)--on the ENTSSO server.

More Information:  2252691 FIX: 0x80131700 error code when starting or configuring the Enterprise Single Sign-On Service.

There have been some questions concerning rollback. A BizTalk service pack includes file updates and executes SQL scripts against the BizTalk databases, just like a BizTalk hotfix. As a result, uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs will not roll back the service pack. If this is a concern, back up all BizTalk databases before installing. See Information on BizTalk Server hotfixes.
