How to Start Batch Orchestrations


If you enable a BizTalk Server party to receive and/or send EDI batches, you will need to start the following batching orchestrations. These orchestrations are not started by the installation wizard or the configuration wizard.

  • Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.BatchSuspendOrchestration.BatchElementSuspendService (assembly: Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.BatchingOrchestration.dll)

  • Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.BatchingOrchestration.BatchingService (assembly: Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.BatchingOrchestration.dll)

  • Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.RoutingOrchestration.BatchRoutingService (assembly: Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.RoutingOrchestration.dll)


The EDI batching orchestrations should only be started if you will be receiving and/or sending EDI batches. Starting them when the system is not receiving or sending EDI batches could affect system performance.

To start batching orchestrations

  1. In BizTalk Server Administration Console, move to the Orchestrations node under the BizTalk EDI Application.

  2. Right-click each of the above orchestrations in turn, and then click Start.
