Deploying local queues (MSMQ) with PowerShell

When migrating your BizTalk Server environment or deploy to a new or different environment, there are many different resources or configurations that you need to take into considerations like:

  • local queue creations
  • cloud queue creations
  • folder creations
  • and so on.

In this blog post, I will address how we can easily “export” a list of existing local private Message Queues (MSMQ) and recreate them, and set proper permissions in a different environment/server.
