Installing BizTalk360 on the single server environment is a straight forward task where the BizTalk server and database are existing in same machine. You can simply run the MSI from the Administrator Command prompt. But in most of the cases, we have seen our customers use BizTalk360 in a High Availability mode where there are atleast two BizTalk servers and clustered SQL servers. The prerequisites for installing BizTalk360 in a High Availability network is the same as that of a single server environment. This section explains the detailed steps to install and configure BizTalk360 on a High Availability BizTalk server.


As a first step, you can download the latest version of BizTalk360 MSI file by filling the Registration form on the BizTalk360 Free Trial page. You will receive an email with the installer download link and the trial key. Follow the steps as shown below to perform the installation of BizTalk360 in a High Availability BizTalk server setup.


Installing BizTalk360 On The First Server (say, Server 1)

  1. Run Command prompt in the "Run As Administrator" mode
  2. Navigate to the location where the MSI file is saved and execute it
  3. In the Welcome to BizTalk360 Setup Wizard screen, click ‘Next’ to continue
  4. Read the End User License Agreement and select ‘I accept the terms in the License Agreement’ to accept the license agreement. Click 'Next'.
  5. In the Prerequisite Checks screen, check whether all the prerequisites have been verified and a green tick mark is placed next to every item. If something is wrong, please cancel the setup, correct the errors, and rerun the setup. If everything is correct, click Next to proceed to the next step.
  6. In the IIS Virtual Directory Settings page, select the IIS website where you want to create the virtual directory. Enter the application pool settings such as Name, username, and password. Once you have entered the information, click Next to proceed further. Make sure the user is a part of the local groups (refer the Prerequisites section).
  7. In the 'Access for creating BizTalk360 Database screen' page, specify the SQL Server Name and Database name. You have the option to test whether the connection to the database is successful. Click Next to proceed to the next screen
  8. In the Windows Service Settings page, leave the default values and click Next. BizTalk360 uses a background Windows service for certain tasks like creating event log data and persisting in the back end SQL server database, taking care of data purging and so on.
  9. In the Custom Setup screen, you can pretty much leave everything as default. Click Next for the final installation verification step

If you simply want the BizTalk servers in High availability configuration to be monitored and you do not want to host the website in the IIS of other machines, you can just install the monitoring service in the other servers by deselecting both BizTalk360 Website and BizTalk360 Database in 'Custom Setup' page.
