Installing BizTalk Server 2006 R2 SharePoint 1057 system error

October 30, 2008

When setting up WSS so you can do a full install of BizTalk, you may get an error similar to “System Error 1057 while trying to query service SPTimer”.  For me, this occured while using the Configure Administrative Virtual Server section of Central Administration.  I was using a local (non AD) service account that I had created.  The problem is corrected if you make sure you enter “domain\user name” or “machine name\user name” format.  Not easy to correlate this error description to the actual issue.

October 26, 2008

In order to use BizTalk with CRM 4.0 you had to tweak the old v3.0 adapter, while it wasn’t a complete solution, you were at least able to connect the two together! So what’s the news today? As of today The Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 adapter for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 is now available at no additional charge!

This adapter has the same functionality as the previously released 3.0 adapter, with the following updates:

Supports both 32-bit and 64-bit deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0
Supports form-based authentication
Supports multi-tenancy

With this adapter, you can integrate Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 with any other non-Microsoft business application using the BizTalk server mapping capabilities, which allows you to discover and use the schema of any of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM entities.

October 17, 2008

La versione Standard di BizTalk Server 2006 R2 ha un costo decisamente più abbordabile della corrispondente versione Enterprise è però limitata a 5 applications, ma cosa intende Microsoft per application ?

Di seguito vediamo un link proveniente dalle FAQ sul licensing che risponde pienamente alla domanda in modo sintetico, preciso e mirato:

Q. What is the definition of a BizTalk Server application ?
A. In BizTalk Server 2006 R2, an application is a logical grouping of all the BizTalk Server design-time artifacts (schemas, maps, pipelines, orchestrations), messaging components (receive ports, receive locations, send ports) and other related items, such as policies that comprise an integrated business process. BizTalk Server applications simplify the deployment and management of BizTalk Server–based solutions.
For example, if you are deploying a 401K solution using BizTalk Server 2006 R2, the related orchestrations, schemas, and artifacts would constitute a single BizTalk Server application.”
