Does anyone know the correct way to do this for BizTalk 2002?:
I have BizTalk Server A using SQL Server B both located in domain C.
I want to bring up new hardware, BizTalk Server Z using SQL Server Y located in domain X, to replace A B and C.
I've seen plenty written about adding a new server to an existing group, or pointing a BTS install at a new database, but not one that does both in one step. Other than for tracking data, is there even any point in migrating the databases if we let the current system process all outstanding messages before "flicking the switch" to the new system?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Update: I recreated the server configuration using BTSConfigAssistant to export the configuration, edited it by hand to point to the correct groups/servers/etc, backed up the live InterchangeDTA (tracking) and InterchangeSQ (Shared Queues) databases and restored them to the new server, and updated the database logins and permissions for the new server. Note that XLangs were not an issue in my case, and your mileage may vary when using this approach. Test test test!!!
