Since some time we have a problem in one BizTalk 2020 (Std) environment. This hasn't occured previously with BizTalk 2016, or initially with 2020.
After Windows Patches are applied (and the server is restarted), the Master SSO Key is lost.
Restoring the Master SSO Key fixes the problem, that really shouldn't be neccessary after Windows Pathing I guess.
The following error is displayed:
"Cannot perform encryption or decryption because the secret is not available from the master secret server”
Could it be that the ESSO service is started too slow? Or is the key really corrupted by the updates?
I'm attaching screenshots of the error and the Windows updates added today.
Have anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions?
