On a Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 server, you are running a BizTalk application.
A subscription error occurs, and then you terminate the suspended service instance.
In this scenario, you may notice that the routing failure reports accumulate in the BizTalkHostNameQ_Suspended table. This causes the BizTalkMsgboxDb database to grow.
Note The BizTalkHostName placeholder is a placeholder for the host name.
This problem occurs because the routing failure reports are not removed from the BizTalkHostNameQ_Suspended table. These routing failure reports cannot be seen in the BizTalk Administration console because the BizTalk Administration console queries the Instances table. When you terminate the suspended service instance after a subscription error occurs, the routing failure reports are removed from the Instances table. Also, you cannot terminate the routing failure reports because they are not associated with a service instance.
Warning You cannot roll back this hotfix from the BizTalk Server environment. 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. For more information, see the Readme.txt file that is included in the hotfix package.
