  • Hi,

    See if this document helps you. It says BizTalk 2009, but it applies to newer versions as well.

  • There is a listing of a lot of resources pertaining to high-availability in Steef-Jan technet article at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/6532.biztalk-server-high-availability-survival-guide.aspx

    That said what is it that constitutes your environment? Are you having two front-end servers and a clustered SQL? There is a MSDN Article on Highly-Available BizTalk Environment at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa560847.aspx which might be your first point of reference.

    If you have a clustered SQL then you should consider clustering the SSO on the same setup. If your BizTalk environment exposes a lot of WCF/ASMX endpoints the you should consider Load-Balancing (NLB) IIS on the BizTalk Frontend's (as opposed to clustering) for better/high availability. If you're accessing external services such as MQ/SFTP/FTP and or DB endpoints then you should look at clustering the receive locations for high availability. If you have both IIS and MQ/SFTP/FTP requirements then depending on the volumes either go for more BizTalk Servers or cluster IIS too.

    You would not get a step-by-step for your environment. Once you have planned/designed/architected your environment then the standard multi-server deployment guide would help you plan the next steps to get the environment functional.

    Regards.
