Configure the BizTalk Group | Azure Virtual Machine

Updated: July 1, 2015

When the virtual machines are provisioned and domain objects are created, BizTalk Server is ready to be configured. This topic lists the steps to create a BizTalk Group using existing BizTalk Server and SQL Server virtual machines. If you don’t have existing BizTalk Server and SQL Server virtual machines, refer to Create the BizTalk Group Prerequisites | Azure Virtual Machine to create the virtual machines and other prerequisites.

When complete, you have a BizTalk Server Group hosted in Microsoft Azure. You can do everything as you would do with an on-premises BizTalk Server Group. And, in much less configuration time.

BizTalk Server can be configured using the following options:

 

BizTalk Configuration

This is similar to configuring an on-premises BizTalk Server. You can configure using Basic Configuration or Custom Configuration:

Basic Configuration: Used when BizTalk Server and SQL Server are installed on the same computer (virtual machine) and use local groups.

Custom Configuration: Used when BizTalk Server and SQL Server are installed on separate computers (virtual machine) and uses domain groups.

BizTalk Provisioning Tool

The Provisioning Tool is considered the “fast” method to configure a BizTalk Group that includes multiple BizTalk Server virtual machines. It’s a command-line tool that uses an XML input file that includes database names, BizTalk Server virtual machine names, service accounts, and other configuration information.
