How to Remove an Orchestration from an Application
This topic describes how to use the BizTalk Server Administration console or the command line to remove an orchestration from a BizTalk application. Removing an orchestration from an application also deletes it from the BizTalk Management database for the BizTalk group.
When you remove an orchestration, the following occurs:
The orchestration is deleted from the BizTalk Management database.
The BizTalk assembly that contains the orchestration is deleted from the BizTalk Management database, but is not removed from the local file system or the global assembly cache (GAC), if it exists in these locations.
As a consequence of the BizTalk assembly being deleted, all artifacts contained in the assembly are deleted from the BizTalk Management database as well.
Before removing an orchestration from an application, bear in mind the following important points:
If other artifacts have dependencies on this orchestration or the artifacts contained in the assembly that will also be removed, they will no longer function correctly when you remove the orchestration. For background information about dependencies, see Dependencies and Application Deployment.
You cannot remove an orchestration that has running instances. You must terminate any running instances.
To perform the procedures in this topic, you must be logged on with an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group. For more detailed information on permissions, see Permissions Required for Deploying and Managing a BizTalk Application.
To remove an orchestration from an application
Using the BizTalk Server Administration console
Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft BizTalk Server 20xx, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
In the console tree, expand BizTalk Server Administration, expand the BizTalk group, expand Applications, and then expand the application containing the orchestration that you want to remove.
Click Orchestrations, right-click the orchestration, and then click Unenlist.
Select the orchestration, point to View, and then click Instance Information.
In the query results pane, right-click the orchestration instances, and then click Terminate.
You can unenlist, terminate running instances, and stop all of the orchestrations in an application at once by using the Full Stop option for the application, as described in How to Start and Stop a BizTalk Application.
Click Orchestrations, right-click the orchestration, and then click Remove.
Using the command line
Open a command prompt as follows: Click Start, click Run, type
cmd, and then click OK.
Type the following command, substituting the appropriate values, as described in the following table:
BTSTask RemoveResource [/ApplicationName:value] /Luid:value [/Server:value] [/Database:value]
BTSTask RemoveResource /ApplicationName:MyApplication /Luid:"MyApp.Orchestrations, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0123456789ABCDEF"
Parameter Description /ApplicationName Name of the BizTalk application containing the orchestration to delete. If the name includes spaces, you must enclose it in double quotation marks ("). If this parameter is not specified, the default application is used. /Luid Locally unique identifier (LUID) of the orchestration. You can obtain the LUID by using the ListApp Command. /Server Name of the SQL Server instance hosting the BizTalk Management database. Required if you specify the Database parameter. If Server and Database parameters are not specified, the default BizTalk Management database for the group is used. /Database Name of the BizTalk Management database. Required if you specify the Server parameter. If Server and Database parameters are not specified, the default BizTalk Management database for the group is used.
