Hi, There,

I am new to BTDF...

I created a biztalk application msi from BTDF. This application includes with schema, component, and orcchetration. It works fine with a single-server biztalk group; but I encounted a problem at two-server biztalk group.

My procedure with multiple-server group:

1) run the msi at biztalk server1;

2) run the msi at biztalk server2;

3) deploy the application at biztalk server2.

When I start and run the biztalk application, i got an error - can't find my component dll. what I found, at biztalk server1 all three assemblies were not install at the GAC. I have to manually install them into GAC. Is there a way to install them into GAC by only run the msi? Cananyone help?

Hi, you must run the deploy step on every server, not just the last one.  Please refer to the documentation for more details.
