By default, the “Startup type” propriety of BizTalk Windows Services, Enterprise Single Sign-On Service, Microsoft UDDI Notification Service, and the new BAMAlerts service are set to “Automatic”, however some of this Windows Services may not start automatically after a system restart, to avoid this behavior you must configure the “Startup type” to “Automatic (Delayed Start)” option in this services:

  • Microsoft UDDI Notification Service
  • Rule Engine Update Service

The previous version of BizTalk Server also had this problem for:

  • Enterprise Single Sign-On Service
  • BizTalk Service BizTalk Group : BizTalkServerApplication Service

However this problem has been resolved in this release, despite being configured as “Automatic“, the Recovery properties are configured to restart the service after failures
