FIX: SQL Server blocking may occur when you have the Message Body Tracking feature enabled in BizTalk Server 2004

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you may have a receive port with the Message Body Tracking feature enabled. When a failure occurs, the failure may cause Microsoft SQL Server blocking. You may notice the SQL Server blocking in the Management node under Current Activity in SQL Server Enterprise Manager. When this failure occurs, the received message is not suspended and is still labeled as "Active" in BizTalk Server 2004 Health and Activity Tracking.

Note For example, one failure is a mapping failure in the receive port.
