How to Add a Custom Section to BTSNTSvc.exe.config (BizTalk Server Config File)?

If you want to add a Custom Section to the BizTalk Server Config file BTSNTSvc.exe.config, follow these Simple steps.

1. Take backup of Existing Config File.
2. Add the following Section as the First Child of Root Node.

<configSections>
    <section name=”MyConfigSection”  type=”System.Configuration.NameValueFileSectionHandler, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089 “/>
</configSections>

3. Add your new Config Section below the </configSections>

eg: <MyConfigSection file=”C:\Test.xml”></MyConfigSection>

In case if you add any wrong section to the BTSNTSvc.exe.config file, you will not be able to start your host instance. You end up getting a weird error in Admin console which like below.
