FIX: The MSMQT receive adapter sends a BAD_DESTINATION_NACK negative acknowledgement after you manually fail over an MSMQT receive port 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This article has been archived.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 manually fail over a BizTalk Message Queuing (MSMQT) receive port from one server to a second server. When a message is received, the MSMQT receive adapter on the second server sends a BAD_DESTINATION_NACK negative acknowledgement.

Additionally, the Microsoft Message Queuing client drops the message. If journalizing is enabled on the client, the message is moved to a dead-letter queue, or the message disappears.
