When you try to suspend or terminate some service orchestration instances in BizTalk Server Administration Console of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, the service orchestration instances stay in the Active state. Therefore, these service orchestration instances appear unresponsive.
This problem typically occurs after some BizTalk Server host instances are shut down incorrectly. For example, some custom pipeline components that you are using stop responding. If you restart the BizTalk Server process (Btsntsvc.exe) to recover from this, you may experience this issue.
This problem occurs because there is a problem in a stored procedure in the BizTalkMsgBoxDB database.
