FIX: Message processing may stop, you may receive an event ID error message, and the MSDTC service may stop committing transactions when you map a large document in BizTalk Server 2004

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.

When you map a large document in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you may experience all the following symptoms:
  • Message processing unexpectedly stops.
  • The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) service stops committing transactions.
  • The following event is logged in the application event log on the computer that is running BizTalk Server 2004:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: BizTalk Server 2004
    Event Category: BizTalk Server 2004
    Event ID: 7683
    Date: date
    Time: time
    User: N/A
    Computer: computername
    Description:Tracking Interceptor: Get Context property failed, error code 8007000e.

Note When this problem occurs, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 may also generate error messages to indicate that SQL Server is out of resources.
This problem may occur if the document goes through a map into a receive pipeline that uses a Disassembler component. BizTalk Server 2004 runs the pipeline disassembly stage after the document transformation stage. BizTalk Server 2004 can track the Pipeline context in managed code or in unmanaged code. This problem occurs when the Pipeline context is tracked in unmanaged code.

This problem occurs because BizTalk Server 2004 does not correctly release unmanaged memory from the default heap. Therefore, BizTalk Server 2004 runs out of memory. The error code 8007000e that is mentioned the Symptoms section corresponds to the following error message:
Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.
This error message indicates an out of memory condition.
