BizTalk SAP Adapter and SAP .NET Connector v2.0

My previous post was incorrect. I was working on the SAP Adapter for BT2004 last week and kept thinking that my lack of knowledge with SAP was preventing me from being able to use the adapter. However, it turns out it was lack of compatibility with the SAP .NET Connector that was the problem.

I was starting to think that was the problem, but I needed proof for the client. So we asked Microsoft and the answer is that no the 2.0 connector does not work with the BizTalk SAP Adapter. The steps to install the correct version are as follows:

If you are running the 2.0 adapter you need to do the following:

1. Remove the SAP adapter from the Biztalk Admin console

2. Uninstall the SAP adapter for Biztalk 2004

3. Uninstall the 2.0 connector

4. Install the 1.0.3 connector from your SAP download location.

5. Install the SAP adapter again.

Next step for me, as I am having a hard time getting version 1.0.3, is to create a custom adapter using version 2.0 of the .NET connector.
