BizTalk 2006 R2 / 2009 RFID on Win2k3 SP2 Domain Controller VPC

I always make the mistake of promoting my VPC BizTalk Server’s OS to DC before install the BizTalk 2006 R2/2009 RFID. And I get the below dreaded message when trying to (in this case) install BizTalk 2009 RFID.

“The product cannot be installed on this machine since it seems to be a domain controller”

What a Start!!!!!.

I did some search on Live Search for install BizTalk RFID on Windows 2003 Domain Controller. I got this article by Mick.

Essentially the Steps are as below:

1. either Install BizTalk 2006 R2/2009 RFID before you promote your VPC OS to DC


(good thing about the below option is that your BizTalk service accounts and groups will be in the domain) I prefer this approach.

1. Install Windows 2003 R2/2008 with AD as a DC in your VPC. then Install Visual Studio 2005/2008 with Service Packs.

2. Then Install BizTalk 2006 R2 / 2009 and then modify the RFIDServices.msi in the RFID_x86 or RFID_x64 folder in the installation media as per the link.
3.  and develop some cool RFID POCs….
