rebooting the BT system properly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, 

    There is a live system that needs to be rebooted due to an update that will install and reboot the system automatically.

    There is no cluster only one BT Server and SQL Server on Windows 2012 and SQL(BT DBs) Server on Windows 2008(A DB for one App). 

    There is a number of parties connected to that server. 

    What would be the appropriate cause of action: 

    1. Start with the BizTalk Server

    a. Inform the parties that the service will be not available during [service window]

    b.  Partial stop on all BizTalk Applications - this will disable all receive location, stop orchestrations and send ports 

    c. Stop host instances 

    d. Stop BizTalk Services (ENTSSO, RuleEngine Update Service)

    2. When BizTalk Services and Apps Are stopped - Move To Install updates on SQL Servers (WIN 2012 and  Wind 2008)

    3. When the updates are installed and the SQL servers up and running, then install updates on the BizTalk Server.

    4. Automatic reboot will bring the BizTalk server up.

    5. Turn all BizTalk Services ON, Start all the applications previously switched Off.

    Do you concur ?

  • No need for Steps 1.c and 1.d. After 1.b reboot, check for SSO and then bring the applications online.

    1. Inform the parties that the service will be not available during [service window]
      1. Check admin console for running instances.
      2. If no running instances.
        1. Stop host instances 
      3. If running instances (Not long running)
        1. Stop all receive location
        2. Check admin console for running instances to be completed.
        3. Stop host instances 
    2. When BizTalk Services and Apps Are stopped - Move To Install updates on SQL Servers (WIN 2012 and  Wind 2008)
    3. When the updates are installed and the SQL servers up and running, then install updates on the BizTalk Server.
    4. Automatic reboot will bring the BizTalk server up.
    5. Start host instances
    6. Start the receive location

    Best regards

  • Looks good.

    It's not called out specifically, but you should first stop all incoming operations, wait for any work to complete, then stop the Applications.
