    Great work! Thanks a lot, Sandro!

  2. Cormac says:

    Were any cumulative updates released for BizTalk Server 2006 (not R2)? Or is it just individual hotfixes. Any links or information regarding this would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi Cormac,

      I will try to check if there is any CU or service pack released for BizTalk 2006 and soon I’ll try to give you more information.

    • Hi Cormac,

      There isn’t any CU or service pack released for BizTalk 2006 only individual hotfixes.

      However there is some service packs for components associated with BizTalk 2006, like BizTalk
      Accelerator for SWIFT or Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for WSE 2.0

  3. Cumulative update package 5 for BizTalk 2009 seems to be missing in your overview.
    Check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2649852.

  4. VC says:

    CU is a collection of hotfixes and we should only install if our system exeprience problems on the list of the fixes. If we dont have any problems, should we still install the latest CUs?

    Thanks!

    • Hi,

      In my option, yes always and why…

      Sometimes you think you don’t have any problems because some they are hard to be detected, for example:
      • Host instance of BizTalk Server 2010 does not resume operation after the connection for a BizTalk Management database resumes, we only realize this error if we really lose connection to the database;
      • or Displayed BAM-portal results might not contain the latest records

      And sometimes are small improvements, for example: A hotfix that improves the performance of the tracking feature in BizTalk Server 2010 is available.

      So in my option you always should install the latest CU.

  5. One note: CU_N do not accumulate previous CU_N-i. For example, CU5 does not accumulate CU4. If you are assume the last CU include all fixes of original product, you are wrong.
