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: https://psrathoud.wordpress.com/2014/12/09/microsoft-azure-creating-your-own-biztalk-sandbox-virtual-machine/
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
