BizTalk Backup job – wrong description

Busy day today, where I was reviewing the BizTalk backup job of the installation I performed and documented earlier. This came to my attention:


The BizTalk Backup Job Description tells:

“This job performs full database backups (step 1) and log backups (step 2) of BizTalk Server databases.”

However, the BizTalk Backup job was updated with the release of BizTalk 2010, where a new step 1 was added to be able to compress the generated backup files. Meaning that it should mention step 2 and step 3 to be correct. Nitpicking I know, but still wrong.

In BizTalk 2013 R2 it clearly states the wrong steps in the description. I checked and already in BizTalk 2010 this is the case. Seems like this small error has already made it into 3 RTM releases of BizTalk Server and only now this pops up. Unsure if I’m the only person who noticed it so far…

  1. Hey,

    Thanks for giving us this feedback, sometimes we forget to update all the text. Based on this blog post (basically you making us aware of it) we’ve changed it and it will look much better in the next release of BizTalk Server.
