Event ID 5754 occurs when you try to send a message to an IBM WebSphere MQ server by using an MQSeries adapter whose Transactions Support property is set to “Yes”


Consider the following scenario:
  • You try to send a message from a Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 server to an IBM WebSphere MQ server. To do this, you use a MQSeries adapter.
  • The server has Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 MQSeries Agent installed.
  • The adapter has the Transactions Support property set to Yes.
In this scenario, the message is suspended. Additionally, you receive the following event on the BizTalk server:
Note When you set the Transactions Support property to Yes, the MQSeries adapter begins a Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) transaction between the BizTalk server and the MQSeries server. When you set Transactions Support property to No, there is no guarantee of message delivery.


This issue occurs because the path of the Amqmtsxatm.dll file is overridden during the installation of BizTalk Server 2009 MQSeries Agent. Specifically, the file path is changed from a full path to a relative path. When this issue occurs, the transaction support property of the MQSeries adapter is broken because the Amqmtsxatm.dll file is no longer referenced correctly in the registry.
