  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    I have scenario where i receive the response for a request after seven days. Now i am planning  to migrate  solution from Biztalk 2006  to 2010.

    question 1:

    So i will be  sending  request using Biztalk 2006, is it possible to receive the response  from Biztalk 2010 solution?

     

    Question 2:

    Is it possible  to migrate message  box (ie state of the biztalk) of biztalk 2006 to Biztalk 2010? (i.e. To continue from the current state.)

  • To start with there is no direct migration path from BizTalk 2006 to BizTalk 2010. BizTalk 2010 supports migration only for the previous two versions i.e 2006 R2 and 2010. Even if I'm on a supported migration, I would try an updrade option I would prefer a clean installtion and migrating my old stuff. Depending on the risk factors.

    In your case, what you should do

    1. Create a new BizTalk 2010 environment, and allow all new request to flow through the 2010 environment

    2. Keep your existing BizTalk 2006 environment, but disable the receive locations, so its not taking any new incoming request.

    3. Once you have received all the responses that corresponds to BizTalk 2006 after 7 days, you decommission the 2006 environment.

    4. Now you are on 2010 environment safely, without risking too much.

  • When you are migrating a solution from BizTalk 2006 to BizTalk 2010, are you referring to Visual Studio solution? If yes, then the process should be – Visual Studio 2005 BizTalk solution to Visual studio 2008 BizTalk solution to VS2010 BizTalk solution.

    As correctly said by Allan – It’s not possible to migrate message box (i.e. state of the BizTalk) of BizTalk 2006 to BizTalk 2010.

    For more information about migration, see the BizTalk Server 2010 upgrade guide.

  • Hi,

    I din't think it's possible to migrate the state of the message box. It MAY be possible to create a new BizTalk group using BizTalk Server 2006, restore the databases from the original group, and then upgrade the new group from 2006 to 2010.

    Maybe the best option would be to create a new group based on BizTalk 2010, and route the new processes to that group whilst allowing the processes to complete on the 2006 group.

    Regards,

    Alan

  • Question 1:

    How are you planning to communicate between BT 2006 and BT 2010?  You would not be able to do any internal communication (like accessing configuration or context properties between two systems), but this can be done as external communication For eg. through services.

    Question 2:

    AFAIK, there is no direct migration path between BT 2006 and BT 2010. But workaround would be to migrate from BT 2006 to BT 2006R2 or 2009 and then migrate to BT 2010.

    HTH.

  • Hi Rajesh,

     

    I am not planning to communicate  between Biztalk 2006 and  2010.

    I think you can directly migrate  from 2006 to 2010, at least  for  the  PoC it worked fine  for me.
