Once you have created a Azure IaaS machine using the BizTalk Server 2013 Developer Azure Gallery Image, there is still a bit off configuration that needs to be done:

This is what your new Desktop will look like

Below are Install instruction specific to this Azure Gallery Image and my method of configuration, see the BizTalk 2013 Installation guides for complete installation instructions

Database SQL Agent Jobs

On a developer machine I typically set all the BizTalk Databases to simple recover mode so I don’t have to configure the BizTalk Server Backup Job

image

DTA Purge and Archive SQL Agent Job

To keep the developer machine clean I also use the following script to just purge the DTA (Tacking) Database, This keeps 10 days of Tracking Data

declare @dtLastBackup datetime 
set @dtLastBackup = GetUTCDate() 
exec dtasp_PurgeTrackingDatabase 1, 10, 11, @dtLastBackup
 
image

finished the basic Then Enable the DTA Purge and Archive Job

image

Conclusion

This finished the basic configuration with a few extra, if you are using BizTalk Unit, BTDF or any other tools, you will need to install them now.

I hope this instruction and screen shots help you get your BizTalk Server 2013 Developer Azure Gallery Image up and running smoothly
