Removing a BizTalk Server 2004 Configuration

You can remove configuration settings from a BizTalk Server without uninstalling the BizTalk by opening a command prompt and executing:

configframework.exe /u

Confirm the configuration has been removed by launching BizTalk Administrator.  The application will notify you of the lack of configuration on startup.  This is useful if you are changing the role of an existing BizTalk server in an organization.

Note: this only removes the configuration settings from the server.  It does not remove SQL databases, SQL maintenance, OLAP cubes, users or groups.  By itself, this does not restore the server to a vanilla state.  If your intent is to do this, please see “Restoring a BizTalk Server to a Vanilla State”.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
