FIX: Message data is not deleted from the tracking database after you run the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure in a BizTalk Server 2006 test environment

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Consider the following scenario. You install Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 in a test environment. You run the Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql stored procedure to configure the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure. You run the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure against a message box database.

In this scenario, suspended messages are removed from the message box database as expected. However, the data that is associated with the messages is not deleted from the tracking database.

Note Do not run the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure on a production server that is running BizTalk Server 2006. You should only run the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure in a test environment. Running the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure in a production environment is not supported.

Therefore, make sure that you fully test this hotfix in a test environment before you apply this hotfix to a production environment. Do not try to use Add or Remove Programs to remove this hotfix because this does not roll back the database changes, and leaves the BizTalk Server environment in an inconsistent state.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
By default, the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure exists in each message box database. However, the script for the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure is empty.

When you install BizTalk Server 2006, a schema that is named Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql is installed in the \Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006\Schema folder. The Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql file contains the definition for the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure. When you run the Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql file, the SQL statements that are required to delete suspended messages from the message box database are inserted into the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure.

To update and then run the bts_CleanupMsgbox stored procedure, follow these steps:
  1. Contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain an updated Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql schema.
  2. In SQL Query Analyzer, run the Msgbox_cleanup_logic.sql file that you obtained in step 1 against each message box database.
  3. Stop all BizTalk host instances in the test environment.
  4. If you are using the HTTP or SOAP adapter, run the IISRESET command at a command prompt.
  5. Stop any custom adapters that are running in out-of-process host instances.
  6. In SQL Query Analyzer, connect to each message box database, and then run the exec bts_CleanupMsgbox command.
  7. Restart all BizTalk host instances and out-of-process host instances.
