Request MDN (synchronous) BizTalk Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ive got a strange behaviour when I check the option Request MDN in the AS2 Agreement while I configured a request-response HTTP receive port. Sometimes a MDN is generated and the response is returning over the HTTP Session request as a response. Sometimes I get a 200 OK ack back while the checkbox is still checked. Also the field in the database is true (NeedMDN from the [tpm].[AS2ProtocolSettings table). We got it this bevaviour on three different environments so its not the configuration. When it works it works but when I change something in the AS2 Agreement something strange is happening.

    How do I refresh the Agreement settings ? I restart everything : BizTalk Host Instance, SSO Service, Application, EDI Application but nothing changed. The settings are cached somewhere but where ??

    I use BizTalk Server 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • BizTalk puts a message on the messagebox sometimes with a promoted property IsAS2Http200OKResponse = True (normal 200OK) and sometimes IsAS2Http200OkResponse=False (a MDN is created)

    Can someone tell me what is going on ?

  • Hi Robert - I had this in-consistent behavior. In my case it was happening every time I would redeploy BizTalk artifacts and the old bindings are imported either via msi import or just plain Resources refresh through Admin Console. (i dont know how you are re-deploy stuff)


    To resolve this I started exporting MSI without bindings specially when re-deploying. Secondly I went to the Users/Temp directory under the following folder and got rid of all the bindings files which prevents the ports/party settings to be overwritten when re-deployments take place.

  • Hi Robert,

    I wanted to apologize for the delay in responding to this issue.

    We have been investigating it, but have not found anything related.  However, I have contacted our escalation group we should have something to add next week.

  • Thanks Imelda. It only appears when you changed something in the Agreement.

    I hope you and your team can find something.

    Gr. Robert.

  • Hello Robert,


    Unfortunately we cannot answer this question via the forum.  Its not something we have seen in the past.  I consulted with our expert and she suggested that you open a case, she said that in order to assist with this she will need to see the environment.

    Best Regards, Imelda
