SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario in Microsoft BizTalk Server:
  • You have a Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) activity that is deployed and is collecting data.
  • The partitioning feature is enabled for the activity.
  • You define an additional milestone for the activity.
  • At a command prompt, you run the following command to update the activity:

    bm.exe update-all –definitionfile:<BAM denifition.xml>
In this scenario, the update fails and you receive the following error message in the Command Prompt window:
Updating Activity… ERROR: The BAM deployment failed.
Encountered error while executing command on SQL Server “<SQL Server Name>
All queries combined using a UNION, INTERSECT or EXCEPT operator must have an equal number of expressions in their target lists.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because of a problem in the logic that handles BAM updates when partitioning is enabled.
