Hotfix installation instructions

Install this hotfix on the computer to which you want to import the .msi file. After you install the hotfix, you must manually register the Microsoft.biztalk.adapters.bizutil.dll file in the Global Assembly Cache. To manually register the Microsoft.biztalk.adapters.bizutil.dll file in the Global Assembly Cache, use the appropriate method.

Method 1: Use the Visual Studio command prompt

If Microsoft Visual Studio is installed, follow these steps to manually register the Microsoft.biztalk.adapters.bizutil.dll file in the Global Assembly Cache:
  1. Open a Visual Studio command prompt. To do this, do one of the following:
    • Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, point to Visual Studio Tools, and then click Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt.
    • Click Start, point to Programs, point to Visual Studio Tools, and then click Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt.
  2. At the Visual Studio command prompt, use the CD command to move to the "Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications\Bin" folder.
  3. Type gacutil /i Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapters.BizUtil.dll, and then press ENTER.

Method 2: Use the command prompt

If Microsoft Visual Studio is not installed, follow these steps to manually register the Microsoft.biztalk.adapters.bizutil.dll file in the Global Assembly Cache:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  2. At the command prompt, use the CD command to move to the folder in which the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 is installed. For example, type cd C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322, and then press ENTER.
  3. At the command prompt, type gacutil /i "drive:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications\Bin\Microsoft.BizTalk.Adapters.BizUtil.dll", and then press ENTER.

    Note drive is the hard disk on which the "Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications" folder is located.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, export the BizTalk application and the binding files separately. After you export the binding file, edit the binding file, and then type a password.

Note The password is stored in the binding file as clear text. We recommend that you do not type the actual password in the binding file. After you import the binding file, edit the port configuration in the BizTalk Administration Console, and then type the password that you want to use.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

When a binding file for an Enterprise Application adapter is exported, the password is inserted into the export file by using asterisks (*). This behavior increases security. However, an Enterprise Application adapter will not validate a port configuration that does not include a valid user name and password. Therefore, you may experience the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section.

When this issue occurs, you may receive an error message that resembles the following in the log file that is generated when you try to import the .msi file for the BizTalk application:
Import Wizard[3/26/2007 3:53:00 PM]: Error in Importing Application

Import Wizard[3/26/2007 3:53:00 PM]: Change requests failed for some resources.

Unable to process create change request for BizTalk binding "BindingInfo.xml". Import bindings (overwrite) failed. Failed to update binding information.

Could not validate configuration of Primary Transport of Send Port 'portname' with SSO server.
