The server architecture is stateless, however BizTalk has add-ons like custom adapters that may compromise stateless status or require additional configuration work to keep it. Here is an example. Configure a receive location with a file adapter. Now, sender puts a lot of files into the receive folder, and BizTalk is…

MSMQ and MSMQT side by side on the same machine

It’s not architectural, but so many people ask, that I decided to have a log entry on the subject. That’s easy: 1.      Add two static IP addresses to your machine. E.g. 100.100.100.5 for MSMQ and 100.100.100.7 for MSMQT. Static is important because Windows will reregister dynamic addresses at each reboot and screw up step 2…

How MSMQT behind NLB works

If the TCP connection breaks, the…
