Hi Tom,

Our production environment runs two biztalk servers, where the 2nd one joined the group created on the 1st one, what support does the framework have for clustered deployments?  Is there a way to force BTDF to only deploy all the assemblies to the GAC, since that is all that is needed on the 2nd server?

Thanks,

Scott

 

EDIT:

Something was nagging at the back of my mind about this and I re-RTFM :)
Unticking "This is the LAST server" does this!

You got it.  :-)  The majority of the work that happens on all servers in the group except the last is to GAC the assemblies.  On the last server the GAC tasks are the minority of the work since that's when the management database is updated, etc.

Thanks,
Tom
