Biztalk 2010 Admin Server unable to Manage WCF Ports.


Problem:

If we have a Dedicated Admin Server for Managing the Biztalk Environment then you may receive the following error when trying to Manage WCF ports:

Windows Communication Foundation Administration Tools 

You will be able to manage the file Adapter and other Standard Adapters without any problems. Only the WCF adapters will give you the error above.

 

Cause:

The following Component was not installed. 
Windows Communication Foundation Administration Tools 

 

Resolution:

We were able to fix the issue by doing the following.


1. Close all instance of bts admin console 
2. Go to Control Panel > Uninstall and choose BizTalk Server and in there modify the install to add Windows Communication Foundation Administration Tools 
3. Once that was added, open a new instance of bts admin console and it works
