I’ve just completed the Microsoft 2934 BizTalk 2006 Admin course and this was the first time I’ve installed BTS06 on an offline server instance (my UAT VPC machines always have an internet connection).
I was pleased to see that for offline installations, the BizTalk team have provided an option to install the pre-requisites from a local CAB file – great work!
Microsoft provide the CAB on their website, however rather than link back to Microsoft, Grant Holiday has all the details on his blog, including the internationalisation links for Windows 2003, XP and 2000.
Yet another great feature in BTS06 – BTS04 installations now take soooooooo long!!
