I have had a few problems with Biztalk this morning. I’ve been trying to validate an EDI instance file against one of the standard EDI schemas supplied with Biztalk. It was bahaving strangely. Initially, the error I was presented with was :
Could not find file “C:\DOCUME~1\USER1\LOCALS~1\Temp\validins.xml”.
Confused, I tried to use the “Generate Instance” function to try to see what was going wrong. This time, I got another error :
XSD2EDI failed to convert XSD: Compiling repository failed
A quick Google on this turned up this page in Microsoft’s knowledge base. In short, if you are logged on to the BT server with a domain account, and the EDI service is running with a machine-local account, you need to ensure that your domain account is in the “EDI Subsystem Users” group on the BT server.
As it happens, my schema instance failed to validate, but that’s life, I suppose.
