I just got back from my presentation on using SCOM/MOM for managing the supporting infrastructure of BizTalk. I presented today at the Midwest Connected Systems User Group (formerly Midwest BizTalk Users Group) in Downers Grove, IL (near Chicago). The website for the usergroup is www.mwbug.org. Here is a summary of the presentation:
BizTalk Server 2006 includes many features for handling server diagnostics, issue resolution and message management. Did you know that BizTalk also provides a specialized management pack for use with Microsoft Operations Manager or Systems Center Operations Manager? This management packs provides additional features for tracking exceptions for BizTalk artifacts such as ports or orchestrations. Ben Cline will describe these capabilities and present how they may be leveraged for managing a BizTalk environment.
