MSMQ and MSMQT Coexistence?

While I see it ideal to have single queuing support on a system, there may be a time where your situation requires both protocols. Maybe your BizTalk implementation needs to access MSMQ elsewhere in the enterprise for a different purpose. Whatever the situation, I’ve tested these steps to add MSMQ to a system:
- Add two static IP addresses to the system; one for the existing MSMQT and the other for MSMQ. If you already have one protocol installed, make it static and add the second.
- Register the IP addresses in DNS with different names.
- Install MSMQ (message queuing) from ‘Add/Remove Windows Components’.
- In the registry, create a new key (string) under “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSMQ\Parameters“ called “BindInterfaceIP“ and set the value to the IP address for MSMQ.
- Configure BizTalk and at the Message Queuing screen, set the IP and name for MSMQT.
- Enable the MSMQT adapter per post-configuration tasks.
Once enabled, give each queue a unique address and you should be good to go.
