I've searched some time before finding this one. So let's share the knowledge.
You may have this kind of event when a host instance starts
Event Type: ErrorEvent Source: BizTalk Server 2006Event Category: BizTalk Server 2006 Event ID: 5410Date: ...Time: ...User: N/AComputer: ...Description:Failed while executing a Windows service request.Service request: StartBizTalk host name: BizTalkServerApplicationWindows service name: BTSSvc$BizTalkServerApplicationAdditional error information:Error code: c0c0153aError source: BizTalk Server 2006Error description: A BizTalk subservice has failed while executing a service request.Subservice: TrackingService request: StartAdditional error information:Error code: 80131534Error source: Microsoft.BizTalk.Bam.EventBusError description: The type initializer for 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection' threw an exception.
This happens when config file is changed. The host instance config file is typically at C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006\btsntsvc.exe.config
Note that this config file can have a problem in encoding or because of a bad character. Try copying it as an xml file (eg.: copy of btsntsvc.exe.config.xml) and opening it with IE.
I have depolyed an application. Every morning, the Host Instance stops and the password gets cleared. I have to put in the password and restart it. It is using domain account. Can anyone help?
I know this is an old thread, but for anyone else that may stumble upon it as I did, my solution turned out to be an order issue. the "configSections" node must be the first child node of "configuration", otherwise you will get this error.
Hey xiidozen.. It worked for me... Thanks...
