Virtual Labs of Biztalk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have small .NET application which uses .NET PerformanceCounter Class and monitor Biztalk server. I do not have Biztalk in my Dev environment.

    Is there any option to RDP to Virtual Labs of Biztalk on rental or free and test my monitoring application?

    Thank you

  • Hi You can create a  Microsoft Biztalk server 2016 Virtual Machine in Azure

    Follow the steps

    1. 1. Login to the manage.windowsazure.com
    2. 2. Click on VIrtual MACHINEs
    3. CREATE A VIRTUAL MACHINE
    4. then select FROM GALLERY
    5. Choose BIZTALK SERVER
    6. you get the optios like 2013 R2, 2016 and 2016 CU1 Developer(its the latest one with SQL HA)

    Hope this will help you.

    You can create it in a seperate resource group , so that you can delete it later when you are done with it. to avoid paying extra for the resource which you dont use.

  • You can create a developer instance of BTS 2016 on Azure
    When allocated the system will run preinstall scripts and you have a RTR virtual machine

  • I will follow the suggestion given by Peter above. 

    You can use free subscription for Windows Azure Service and you can create an instance for BizTalk in cloud, run your .net code and test your application.

  • Thank you. I have created BizTalk 2013 Server in https://manage.windowsazure.com. I am getting invalid object error in my Application.

    I tried to check the performance counters using perfmon as per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa560410.aspx. But i am not able to fine any BizTalk related to Performance Counters. Refer the screenshot

    1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Performance Monitor.

    2. In the Performance Monitor dialog box, expand Monitoring Tools, select Performance Monitor, and then click Add.

    3. In the Add Counters dialog box, from the Available Counters list, select either BizTalk:Message Box:General Counters or BizTalk:Message box:Host Counters. Expand the selected performance counter object and select the counters to be monitored
