  • Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 Developer Edition
  • Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 Enterprise Edition
  • Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 Standard Edition


Consider the following scenario:

  • A Web service contains two Web service methods in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006. One method is a two-way Web service method. The other method is a one-way Web service method.

Note A two-way Web service method includes a request method and a response method. A one-way Web service method only includes a request method.

  • A BizTalk orchestration uses both Web service methods in the same SOAP send port.

In this scenario, when an orchestration port uses the two Web service methods, the one-way method returns an unexpected response exception. The exception causes routing failures and suspended messages.


To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:

Method 1

Make sure that the Web service contains either the one-way Web service method or the two-way Web service method.

Method 2

Make sure that the Web service exposes either the one-way Web service method or the two-way Web service method.

Method 3

Follow these steps:

  1. Manually define the one-way port type and the two-way port type instead of using a Web port type.
  2. Create the corresponding one-way Web service method and the solicit-response port in the BizTalk Explorer.
  3. In the SOAP transport properties dialog box, configure the proxy and the methods of the SOAP send port.
  4. Set the SOAP.MethodName property before you send the message out.


After you apply this hotfix, BizTalk Server queries the attributes that are compiled with the Web service method. Therefore, BizTalk Server can determine at runtime whether the Web service method is a one-way method or a two-way method. If the Web service method has the One-way property set to true, the unexpected responses are no longer generated.
