BizTalk Health Monitor – From latest BHM report

Today I was doing some cleanup on a Dev and Test environment with BizTalk Health Monitor, when I noticed the “From latest BHM report”, I’m not sure how long that feature has been there, but it makes it easier to find the Tasks that you need to run.

Finding the SSH server host key fingerprint — BizMunch

Up till, and including, BizTalk Server 2016, the SFTP adapter included with BizTalk Server, has only supported SSH server host key fingerprints using the RSA algorithm, also called an RSA key fingerprint. Previously, you could connect to an SFTP server using FileZilla, and get the RSA key fingerprint that way. In recent versions, FileZilla will […]

BizTalk Tools

It was announced in March that Codeplex was shutting down.

As of this post, we’ve disabled the ability to create new CodePlex projects.  In October, we’ll set CodePlex to read-only, before shutting it down completely on December 15th, 2017.

So various tools and code that are used for BizTalk have moved to a new home.

Below is a list of their new locations, and I’ll add the location of new projects as well.

Projects not moved

.Net 4.6 now supported for BizTalk 2013 R2, BHM 4.1 released

Over a year ago we hit a situation where we got a warning from BHM about .Net 4.6 not being supported, which was a bit of effort to sort out.

Today I looked at the release notes for the latest BizTalk Health Monitor, v4.1 and noticed that in the release notes it said “Removed BizTalk 2013 R2 .NET 4.6.x warning since it is now supported”.   I then checked Hardware and Software Requirements for BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2 and sure enough, they have now listed .Net 4.6 as supported for BizTalk 2013 R2.

Here are the other changes for BizTalk Health Monitor

• Fixed issue with losing monitoring configuration
• Upgraded update mechanism to handle all components of BHM
• Added support for displaying each view of a BHM report in HTML format
• Improved update to happen on secondary thread
• Improved the ChkBHMRep.exe tool
• Added support for BizTalk 2013 R2 CU6, BizTalk 2016 CU1, and BizTalk 2016 FP1 (Feature Pack 1)
• Improved report to provide DTA purge job parameters with improved formatting
• Added warning for infinite max SQL memory config
• Fixed some issues with detecting Host Integration Server CUs
• Removed BizTalk 2013 R2 .NET 4.6.x warning since it is now supported
• Updated query and rules repository

 

Editing or viewing large XML Files

With BizTalk you sometimes have to open up large XML files either as input, or after they have been parsed by a flat file schema, or as the output from a map.  Opening it with Visual Studio or other tools is very slow and sometimes to makes them crash.
