BizTalk Server 2013 CU 7

Because we, the geeks at Art2link are interested that all BizTalk Server users get the most of the latest technology, I have some news for you. Following the loop of updates available at Microsoft,  BizTalk Server 2013 CU 7 has been announced and ready to go!

BizTalk Server 2013 CU 7 applies to: BizTalk Server 2013 Branch, Developer, Enterprise, and Standard.


The KB article  4091110 – Update adds support for TLS 1.2 protocol in BizTalk Server included in this update, must be read carefully, and assure that the mentioned prerequisites are available on the computer that will receive this update. Otherwise, the update will not be able to be completed.

The BizTalk Server 2013 CU 7 encloses all the hotfixes for the Microsoft BizTalk Sever 2013 issues that were repaired following the announcement of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013.

I suggest that hotfixes be tested previous to their deployment in a production environment. I also recommend applying the latest BizTalk Server 2013 update release, because the builds are cumulative. This means that every new update encloses all the hotfixes and security updates included in the previous BizTalk Server 2013 update release.

How to obtain cumulative update package 7 for BizTalk Server 2013

To provide fixes and updates, BizTalk Server uses a cumulative update (CU) model. Every CU encloses the new updates, as well as the previous ones. Microsoft has suggested to first test and then apply the latest CU to each BizTalk Environment.

All new fixes are publicly released in the upcoming cumulative update. Stand-alone fixes may be provided prior to the next cumulative update if the reported problem is critical, has significant business impact, and does not have a workaround. Stand-alone fixes (if provided) require the latest released cumulative update as a prerequisite.
