Installing BizTalk Server 2013 R2 and ESB Toolkit

So I recently started getting my hands on BizTalk 2013 R2 version. We are running BizTalk 2013/ 2009 so far. I am sharing some of my personal experiences while installing and configuring the BizTalk 2013 R2 version.

The one go to stop for setting up BizTalk 2013 R2 is following Sandro Pereira’s blog, it isa  series of posts and believe me you are not going to need anything else, a big thanks to him for publishing those, made my life lot easier:

Note: If you do not have the proper machine/OS  to set BizTalk  you may want to look at the MS Azure to set up your own BizTalk server machine in no time. Please see this post:

Having said that I bumped into some diffiernt errors while installing and just making a note for all of us at BizTalk community. Please add in if you feel I am missing something here.

1>If you install VS 2012 by mistake that will result in no BizTalk sdk in VS 2012. Hence for BizTalk 2013 R2 you will have to only use VS 2013.

2>BizTalk 2013 solutions can be opened on both VS 2012 and VS 2013.

3>After you are done with installing BizTalk server and before installing Adapter pack you are going to find number of windows update, please make sure you have all of them completed before hitting the install button for Adapter pack.

4>While adding adapter to BizTalk you may bump into this error.
Check that SSO is configured and that the SSO service is running on that server. (RPC: 0x800706D9: There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper
Solution: Go to windows services: Check Enterprise Single Sign On Service is runing or not if not start ist/Do the same with Remote Procedure Call (RPC).

5>Another error you may bump into can be
There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again?
For resolution please go this this post:

6>Another error I bumped into while configuring the BizTalk ESB tool is.
Network path could not be found.
For resolution of this error please go to following post:


Error : There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again?

You may bump into this error while configuration UDDI service post installing and configuring BizTalk 2013 R2. Also this error will pop up during adapter pack installation. This error will also result in loosing your IIS settings .
Failed to connect
There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again?
Filename: C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\Microsoft.Adapters.SAP_schema.xml
Line number: 1
Error: Configuration file is not well-formed XML
Yes No
IIS error

Most likely is a installation glitch. The error is self explanatory in this case. Please go ahead and check the path “C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\” and notices the xml file sixe was 0 KB.


Next open the BizTalk installation ISO file and look for the xml in the following location:
F:\BizTalk Server\AdapterPack_x64\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack(x64)\IIS Schemas
Copy over this file to the missing one.

Next type IISRESET in the search box of Windows server 2013 R2 and complete your IIS reset. Go ahead and retry configuring UDDI and installing BizTalk adapter pack and it should be successful.
