Azure IaaS BizTalk Server 2013 Provision Under 30 Minutes
I needed a sandbox BizTalk server for BizTalk proof of concepts. I decided to use Windows Azure IaaS and more specifically the BizTalk Server 2013 Evaluation. Here is what I did:
Logged into Windows Azure Portal, started provisioning the server. See print screens below…
Step 4 (note, do not use ‘Administrator’ it’s already used on the VM when Azure provisions it)
Step 6 (note, Availability Set is used to deploy VM’s accross multiple fault domains (or set of racks). For sandbox, this is not needed.
Azure is provisioning a new server based on our configuration.
Azure completed provisioning. Now I can remote desktop into the server.
After logging in, I copied a BizTalk configuration file I had. I opened the file, search and replaced user name and domain/server name where applicable.
You can also simply use Basic Configuration if it’s for a sandbox like mine.
Voila! Server provisioned with SQL Server, BizTalk Server 2013 installed and configured.
