Consider the following scenario:

  • You are using Microsoft BizTalk Server.

  • You have multiple file receive locations (RL) that are pointing to different folders on the same Distributed File System (DFS) share.

  • In order to access the share, the file receive locations have alternate credentials that are supplied in Authentication tab.

  • In this scenario, if there is a temporary network issue that causes the RL to get disabled, BizTalk file receive host gets stuck in a tight loop where a single thread consumes the CPU.

  • This may result in the application event logs receiving a high volume of errors like the following until the user manually stops the host instance:

The receive location "ReceiveLocation" with URL "\\dfsserver\share\folder\file*.xml" is shutting down.
Details:"The Messaging Engine failed while notifying an adapter of its configuration.

The Messaging Engine failed to remove the receive location "ReceiveLocation" with URL "\\dfsserver\share\folder\file*.xml" from the adapter "FILE". Reason: "80070057".


This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates for BizTalk Server:

Cumulative Update 2 for BizTalk Server 2016

Cumulative Update 6 for BizTalk Server 2013 R2
