UDDI Services provides Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) capabilities for sharing information about Web services within an organization’s intranet, between business partners on an extranet, or on the Internet. UDDI Services can help improve the productivity of developers and information technology (IT) professionals with more reliable and manageable applications. With UDDI Services you can prevent duplication of effort by promoting reuse of existing development work.

In a stand-alone installation, all default and optional components are installed on a single server. An instance of SQL Server must be installed before installing UDDI Services. When installing UDDI Services, the local instance of SQL Server is used to host the UDDI Services Database. UDDI Services Web Application and Notification Service are then configured to use the local UDDI Services Database.

  • Close all applications before running setup. Run the BizTalk Server 2013 installer as Administrator.

    hello mr pereira.
    my UDDI services weren’t successfully installed.
    so i read the log files, the log file said “Message: Cannot install UDDI Services to this operating system version”
    my OS is win8 64bit professional.
    do you have any recommendation related the problem above?

    • Hi Ian,
      Are you installing BizTalk Server 2013 or BizTalk Server 2010?
      Because with BizTalk Server 2013 and according to official documentation you can install UDDI on Windows 8, the same does not apply in 2010.

      However I’m not the best person to respond your question because I never install BizTalk Server in Windows 7 or 8, I always install and advice to install in Windows Server for many reasons.

    • Hi,
      I am also getting the same error in win8 Pro.

      While configuring the uddi services database component i am getting error:

      There is already a database named UDDI3 created. You should backup this database if needed and then remove it.

      I tried to remove it from the sql server 2012 but still it comes after a while.

      Have u got the the resolution for this?

    Hi Sandro,

    Thanks for all the great posts.

    I’m installing BizTalk 2013, esb 2.2, on Windows Server 2013, SQL server 2013 with BizTalk and SQL on separate boxes.

    When attempting to configure UDDI using custom, the configuration tool reports and error “Unable to connect to the database server.” Its not clear to me what should be specified in the Database Data Files Location (defaults to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft UDDI Services\data\). If you have done a custom configuration and have any insight you can share it would be appreciated.
