Service Pack 1 of BizTalk Server 2006 R2

  • Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is an update for BizTalk Server 2006 R2. The SP1 installation program that’s available on this page offers a unified installation experience: It will automatically detect and update all of the BizTalk Server components that are currently installed on your machine. It will also detect all BizTalk Server hotfixes currently installed, and will distinguish between hotfixes that predate this service pack, and those which were issued after this service pack was released. An SP1 Guide document is also available for download on this page, and describes the installation experience in detail.

    SP1 includes a roll-up of hotfixes from the BizTalk Server 2006 and 2006 R2 releases, some hotfixes from the BizTalk Server 2009 release, as well as some additional enhancements. Some of the key fixes and enhancements in this service pack are the following:

    Better reliability, performance, and scale for the following key features:
    • Throttling and dehydration of orchestrations.
    • Archiving and purging operations.
    • BAM alerts and archiving.
    • HIPAA.
    • Reduced memory consumption in scenarios using scripting functoids.
    • Improvement in the bts_FindSubscription stored proc, resulting in faster execution and lower CPU utilization.
    Better management and deployment experiences:
    • Performance and user experience improvements of key scenarios.
    • WCF configuration management.
    • Significant improvement in deployment time for send ports using a map.
    Improved support:

            Connection string (all the SQL connection properties)
            Document Target Namespace
            Response Document Root Element
    • Ability to disable generation of Routing Failure Report.
    • Fixes to some issues that used to cause high CPU usage by BizTalk Server hosts due to certain .NET updates.
