Since Isaac is publishing post after post I thought it is time for me to also post something.
I developed a useful tool, called the Biztalk Host Manager (BTSHostManager), which we use in our development team to be able to quickly stop, start and especially restart BTS host instances.
Because all our developers found it a helpful tool we thought we would make it available for download.
- It monitors background service state change of host instances (not by default, use options to enable) .
- It works for Biztalk 2004 and 2006.
- A seperate Biztalk 2006 version (compiled against 2.0 framework) will be available soon.
- This is not the final release version. We are still testing it, so please mail me any bugs you find.
