Microsoft BizTalk Server 2002 - Retrieve maps from WebDAV

    • If your Proxy Server Port is not 80, you will need to type the following in the Server list, http://<server name>:<port number>, to access maps stored in WebDAV.

    • You cannot retrieve maps on a secure server. For example, if the server is https://<server name>/biztalkserverrepository, you will not be able to access any maps.
  3. Browse to the folder that contains the map you want to retrieve, click the map, and then click Open.

  • If you get an error message, such as "No BizTalk Server Repository was found on http://<server name>/BizTalkServerRepository/Maps," when you are trying to opening existing maps from WebDAV, re-register msdaipp.dll and then restart your computer. For more information about how to re-register msdaipp.dll, see Re-register msdaipp.dll to retrieve or store maps in WebDAV.

  • When the X12 templates included with the BizTalk Server installation are used in BizTalk Editor, you might encounter an error message similar to the following:

    The length of the "ITD05" field ("") is not valid; it must be between 48 and -1. This document will be rejected.

    The X12 templates use the implied decimal data type Nx. If the input data contains a decimal point, output will not match the N custom data type (which means no decimal point) and will create invalid instances in the intermediate XML file. In this release of BizTalk Server, the serializer might not detect whether the intermediate XML file contains a decimal point for data type N output. To resolve this issue, you must manually change the implied decimal data type in the X12 templates to any other numeric data type.

  • You might experience a delay the first time you connect to a remote WebDAV server.

  • To retrieve a map in WebDAV, you must have permission to retrieve files on the server.

  • Once you install BizTalk Server 2002, if you open a map that you created using BizTalk Server 2000, the file format will be changed if you save the file and you will not be able to open it again using BizTalk Server 2000.
