BizTalk Server 2020 – 20 days, 20 posts: Installing BizTalk Server 2020 in a Standalone Machine Guide

BizTalk Server 2020 – 20 days, 20 posts – day 8. Microsoft announced a few months ago, the release of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2020 – the 11th major release of BizTalk Server –and, as usual with previous versions, I updated my installation and configuration manual for BizTalk Server 2020. This whitepaper will explain in detail – a step-by-step guideline – how to install and configure Microsoft BizTalk Server 2020 on a standalone environment running Windows Server 2019. This information will help you plan the installation and configuration of BizTalk Server 2020, applications and components on which it depends focused on creating a development environment (you can also follow this tutorial to help you create production environments, however, if this is the case you need to skip some steps).

Installing BizTalk Server 2020 in a Standalone Machine Guide

Assumptions and out of scope

We will be assuming that the operating system: Windows Server 2019 and the latest critical Windows updates from Microsoft already have been installed.

In this scenario, we will be performing a full installation of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2020. The following components will be installed:

  • Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO).
  • BizTalk Group.
  • BizTalk Runtime.
  • Business Rule Engine.
  • BAM Tools and Alerts.
  • BAM Portal.
    • BAM Portal it is deprecated, but we still can use it.
  • BizTalk EDI/AS2 Runtime.
  • REST APIs (Management data APIs)
    • Management data APIs are endpoints that let you remotely update, add, and query the status of different artifacts in your BizTalk Server environment. The endpoints are added using REST and come with a swagger definition.
  • BizTalk TMS.
    • BizTalk TMS is a service that refreshes authentication tokens used by BizTalk. It is a prerequisite for the Office 365 adapters.
  • Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications.

  1. If I install a test-biztalk in Azure, can I copy it for prod, or do I need to re-install it for prod?

  2. I’ve tried downloading this whitepaper several times using these email addresses:

    I get a message I’m supposed to get an email with the link and it never comes through. Is there a direct download link? These guides are very helpful getting going with the new versions.

    1. Hi Curtis,
      I’m trying to see what is the problem and get the BizTalk360 team to provide the correct link

  3. Hello,

    what about MaxDOP SQL Server 2019 setting regarding BizTalk 2020 ? Is it still recommanded to put it to “1” ?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

  4. Hello Sandro,

    I tried to download this paper, but even after a few hours I still have not received it yet. Do you know if it can be downloaded from another page or if there’s a way to see it directly from my browser.

    Thanks! Greetings from Guadalajara, Jalisco, México

  5. Hi Sandro,
    i am unable to download the BizTalk 2020 installation white paper using the link provided.

  6. Hi Sandro,
    I’m new installing a BizTalk environment, I have followed the installation guide of BizTalk Server 2020 on Windows Server 2019 environment as a standalone machine, but I have some issues after the installation.
    When I try to open BizTalk Administration Console, I’m getting a Login failed error, even when the user is registered at BizTalk Server Administrators windows group, if I add the user to SQL Server Logins then the error is fixed, the idea of the groups is to avoid the need of adding users to SQL Sevrer, have you ever seen this behavior?

    1. I think it only shows the software your account/subscription has access to. If it doesn’t show anything them you don’t have access to it. I can see all version on my subscription.

  7. Hello,
