  • Did you create Server B by cloning Server A ? If so then you would have created the problem with MSDTC on server B sharing the same CID as Server A. In this case you'd need to reinstall MSDTC and then try.

    Even otherwise check the MSDTC connectivity between servers B and C using DTC Ping and/or DTC Tester.

  • Hi Shankycheil,

    I did not clone server B by cloning server A.

    I have checked msdtc and it is working fine between both server.

    I ping from server A to server C, and got the correct response.

    Even in admin console I connect existing group and it is added successfully.

    Should I create a new SSODB ?

  • Not clear to me if you have joined existing SSO system

  • Hi

    Is the SSO Server up and running on ServerA?

    If yes, the next thing you need to check is DTC communication between ServerA and ServerB. A firewall rule could be blocking RPC ports - you can disable firewall on both ServerA and ServerB and do a test.

    To test DTC, you can refer-

  • You'd also need to check connectivity between the servers A and B. Since A was the first server, that would host the Enterprise SSO Master and since the complaint is about the non-availability of the RPC endpoint it would be about the ports/network connectivity between servers A & B.

    Refer to and run through the complete tests/steps.

  • Hi Guys,

    I tried to connect BizTalk Group in admin console and it is connected successfully.

    It means BizTalkMgmtDB is able to connect. I am also able to restart/stop the host instance.Only problem is that I am not able to create host instance for Server B because SSODB is missing.

    Can we create a new SSO database and configure biztalk on Server B to Server A's DB (biztalkmgmtDB,biztalkmsgboxDB etc) ?

    Will this trick work ?

    when I create new SSODB through BizTalk Configuration then will it create new BizTalkMgmtDB, BizTalkMsgBoxDB etc in Server C, that's only the confusion I have.

  • All BiuzTalk servers in the same setup uses the same SSODB
    Did you check MSDTC connectivity?
    On which server is the SSO service running?

  • Hi Arindam/Shankycheil/Peter,

    SSO Server is up and running on serverA.

    No port is block and firewall is on for both server.

    Even I am able to add group in BizTalk admin console on server B.

    I also ping from Server A to server B and Server B to server A and both r giving correct response.

    And I think when they are pinging well then it means there is no problem with RPC and DTC.

    Please suggest something else.

  • Hi guys,

    I have two more query :

    If server A is able to ping to server C then can we say that server C will surely ping server A ?

    If server A and server B are virtual machine than will I able to use same SSODB for both server ?

    Please suggest something !


    Monday, July 24, 2017 9:27 AM
  • Please have a look at to address MSDTC related issues.

    When you try and join the group, the SSO on B will try and connect/establish connectivity to the Primary SSO Server on A. Can you ping A from B ?

    Since you mention both servers as being virtual servers have yo fixed IP's on both or are you running on DHCP ? try fixing IP's, try disabling firewalls...
