BizTalk Server 2006 Rolling Thunder #1: Setup and Migration

Two weeks late, after stunning rolling silence and a few people questioning directly and through my blog  whether I would actually get this done - we are finally ready to go!

Between now and the big TechEd unveiling I'm going to regularly post BizTalk Server 2006 feature documents to my blog.  Remember its called BizTalk Server 2006 because it isn't shipping until 2006.

We will cover all types of interesting features including: Adapter Enhancements, Applications and Deployment, Business Activity Monitoring, Developer Tools Improvements, and Runtime Improvements. 

However, in the spirit of starting at the start the first document explains the setup and migration features of BizTalk Server 2006. Get it here.

Thanks to Jeff and Salim for pushing hard and doing most of the work here.

P.S. To download the document you must first navigate to and join the group called biztalkserverstuff as the document is stored in the repository for that group. You will get an error downloading the document if you are not a member of the biztalkserverstuff MSN group.

P.P.S. Note these documents are all pre-release materials, subject to change etc.

Enjoy and See you at TechEd,

Cheers Scott.
