FIX: An XML message remains in the active queue instead of in the suspended queue when you enable tracking after port processing for a send port that uses the EdiSend pipeline in BizTalk Server 2006 R2


Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, you create a send port that uses the EdiSend pipeline.
  • You enable tracking after port processing for the send port.
In this scenario, you receive an error message that resembles the following if you serialize an XML message that is not valid:
The Messaging Engine encountered an error while suspending one or more messages.
You receive this error message instead of receiving a suspended message.

Additionally, the XML message remains in the active queue instead of in the suspended queue.
