Error message when you try to install BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 1.3: "Installation cannot be performed because the BizTalk Server has not been configured or user account is not a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group"


Symptoms


When you try to install Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for Health Level 7 (HL7) 1.3, the installation may fail. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
Error: Installation cannot be performed because the BizTalk Server has not been configured or user account is not a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group.
You receive this error message even though you have configured Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 by using domain local scope groups for the BizTalk Administrators and BizTalk Operators groups.

Cause


This issue occurs because BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 1.3 is not designed to use domain local groups. BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 1.3 must be configured to use domain global groups.

Workaround


To work around this issue, use one of the following methods:
  • For the BizTalk Administrators and BizTalk Operators groups, change the group scope for domain local groups to the universal scope, and then change the scope from the universal scope to the global scope. If you use this method, you can install BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 without having to reconfigure BizTalk Server 2006.
  • If you cannot change the group scope for the BizTalk Administrators and BizTalk Operators groups to the global scope, follow these steps:
    1. Run the configuration.exe /u command to unconfigure BizTalk Server 2006.
    2. Use the global scope to re-create the BizTalk Server Administrators and BizTalk Operators groups.
    3. Use the global groups that you created in step 2 to reconfigure BizTalk Server 2006.
    4. Install BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 1.3.

Status
