BizTalk Server Compatibility with BizTalk Server Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I want to know about the BizTalk Server Group compatibility with BizTalk Servers in the group.

    I got the MS statement that “mixed” BizTalk Server group that includes both 32-bit and 64-bit BizTalk runtimes is supported.

    However, my concern is, can we have different BizTalk Servers version in Same BizTalk Server Group.

    Scenario

    • Let us assume, I have two different versions of BizTalk Servers i.e. BTS 2006 R2 EE 64 bit and BTS 2009 EE 64 bit. So can I add these Servers in a BizTalk Server Group ?

    Thanks..

  • No, like William said you cannot have different BizTalk versions in the same group. One reason why is that the supporting SQL Server database objects are different for different BizTalk versions.

    I would anticipate there would not be a problem if you had 32-bit and 64-bit BizTalk servers in the group.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Shiv,

    No.  A single server can reside in only one group, and must be running the same version and language of BizTalk Server.

    Thanks,
