In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006, you use a correlated receive in a long-running orchestration. If you periodically change the schema definition, BizTalk Server detects a schema version mismatch. When BizTalk Server detects the schema version mismatch, BizTalk Server suspends the orchestration. Additionally, BizTalk Server occasionally logs the following event in the Application log:
Event Source XLANG/S
Hotfix informationNote You cannot roll back this hotfix from the BizTalk Server environment. Therefore, before you apply this hotfix to a production environment, make sure that you fully test this hotfix in a test environment.

After you install this hotfix, the event message occurs every time that a schema version mismatch is detected. In other words, this hotfix makes sure that the orchestration instance is suspended and an Error event is logged in the Application log every time that a schema version mismatch occurs, instead of being logged only occasionally. However, if you do not want to log the error message in BizTalk Server 2006, you can change the Btsntsvc.exe.config file to skip the unexpectedmessagetype exception.
In some long-running orchestrations that use a correlated receive mode, schema updates cannot be made. In this scenario, you can change the behavior so that orchestration instances are not always suspended when schema version mismatches are detected. We recommend that you complete all active instances or publish a new application. However, if this is not possible for an application that is already published, you can change the Btsntsvc.exe.config file so that it skips the unexpectedmessagetype exception. You must have the hotfix installed to support these configuration changes.
Note If you override the Btsntsvc.exe.config file on a BizTalk server, make sure that no schema changes are made to the published schema. If changes are made, unpredictable results can occur.
To change the Btsntsvc.exe.config file, add the following sections to the configuration element:
After you change the Btsntsvc.exe.config file, the Btsntsvc.exe.config file resembles the following section:
