Cannot add adapter because of a duplicate Alias value

Hello BizTalk Techies,

I have seen many peoples have faced this issue when trying to configure the SFTP adapter in BizTalk 2013/R2. 

“Cannot add adapter because of a duplicate Alias value. (WinMgmt)”

It is because we already have SFTP adapter so need another name to make it work in parallel with inbox SFTP also installed (by default in BizTalk 2013).

Here required some modification in Registry. First Install it from:
Change the registry value from SFTP to BSFTP, and for that follow below steps,

  • Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  • Go to, [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeClassesCLSID{B4F8C77D-08C9-4B82-9922-ABB646654DEB}BizTalk]
  • Change: “AliasesXML”=”<AdapterAliasList><AdapterAlias>BSFTP://</AdapterAlias></AdapterAliasList>”

And you are done, add adapter in BizTalk admin console with BSFTP prefix,

Yes, it’s done and you should restart the host instance for the changes to take effect.

    I cannot find this on BizTalk Server 2016. Do you know, by any chance, how to configure this on BizTalk Server 2016? Thanks
