TerminateServiceInstances fails with status pending

Topics: Server Deployment
Feb 17, 2012 at 11:02 AM


As part of our deployment we terminate the service instances for the application, so that we can undeploy it.

Sometimes the TerminateServiceInstances fails, because the status returend from the BizTalk API is Pending, and not Success.

Any experience with such a senario? Could it be that it's a timeout issue? That the BizTalk API returns because it has waited long enough?

Hi Morten,

Since the BizTalk API doesn't seem to be acting as expected, I don't think this is a Deployment Framework-specific issue.  You'll probably have better luck over at the Microsoft BizTalk forums.

Hi Tom,

Yes it's obviously comming from the API, I was *hoping* that you had seen this before :-)
I'll head over to the BizTalk forums.
