Using Shell Script/WMI Script To Automate : BizTalk

So I was rather placed with this unique situation where In I had to automate the termination of Routing failure reports due to some business requirement.

How Do We Do That?

1st Approach:

1>Write a wmi script to terminate the suspended instance (Or whatever you wish to).

2> Call that in a batch file.

3>Have that batch file called in from windows scheduler.

Problem: In case you are running BizTalk server 2006 R2 chances are you might run into into following error:

The COM+ Services DLL (comsvcs.dll) was unable to load because allocation of thread local storage failed.
Process Name: wmiprvse.exe
Error Code = 0x80070008 : Not enough storage is available to process this command.
COM+ Services Internals Information:
File: d:\nt\com\complus\src\comsvcs\comsvcs\comsvcs.cpp, Line: 334
Comsvcs.dll file version: ENU 2001.12.4720.3959 shp

This is a known Microsoft issue and you need this patch for your WMI to work.

2nd Approach

Write a Powershell script.Copy the script file and paste it to your local file system, for example C:/

2>Right click on YourScript.ps1 and pick edit.

3>type in Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted in the prompt and confirm yes.

4>Type in Get-ExecutionPolicy and check if the result is unrestricted.

5>Open the windows scheduler
Start>> All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>Scheduled Task

6>Create a new task after clicking on “Add Scheduled Task”.

Pick powershell in the list of the first modal window you get
On the run paste following: C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -File C:\YourScriptName.ps1

Shell Script:

Get-WmiObject MSBTS_ServiceInstance -namespace ‘root\MicrosoftBizTalkServer’ -filter ‘ServiceClass = 64’ |`
%{Get-WmiObject MSBTS_ServiceInstance -namespace ‘root\MicrosoftBizTalkServer’ -filter “InstanceID = ‘$($_.InstanceID)'”} |`
%{ $_.Terminate()} |`
%{ Out-Null }
