Neuron ESB User Network

The Service Bus for the Connected Business

Hi Everyone,

We're getting ready to upgrade our Neuron ESB 2.5 server to 3.0 and are taking the opportunity to make some additional infrastructure changes like upgrading to Server 2012, consolidating servers, etc. As part of this change (and as a potential performance increase), we'd like to move our MSMQ queues to be local to the ESB.


Having said that, what is the recommend high availability configuration with local queues on stateless ESB servers behind a load balancer? Should the MSMQ and ESB services be setup as a clustered resources in active/passive node configuration? Should MSMQ and ESB be setup to run locally only and let the load balancer divide the work?


Thanks in advance for any guidance!

Hi. So...we just put out the build update of Neuron.  you should download stuff.

for HA with local queues.  Local queues are always the way to go.  Best is probably an active/passive cluster.  you could do 2 sets of clusters behind a load balancer, or do a 4 node cluster with 3 active nodes, 1 passive.  each active node would have the ESB runtimes as well as the MSDTC and MSMQ in the same resource group

Thanks for the response Marty - this is extremely helpful. I've forwarded this info to our infrastructure/ops guys and will reply back to this thread with additional questions because it may be helpful for others as well.


Thanks again!

Using unsupported OAuth provider

Is it possible to create a custom OAuth provider?  Specifically, we are working with Cisco ( have a requirement to integrate with a Cisco soap server which uses OAuth2 for authentication. We are using a Service Connector to send a message to the SOAP service, but we need to write custom code in a business process to authenticate with their Cisco OAuth provider. We saw that Neuron supports…See More

Docker Windows 2019 - Neuron 3.5

Hi, We are using 3.5 for our application and I am trying to containerise it for our integration tests.  Building and deploying VM's as this is very time consuming to build and deploy.So I have decided that I to go down docker; everything in our stack has migrated nicely except Neuron.  The first issue was that I needed a later version of the 2016 image or 2019 image from MS which I have. I have managed to install MSMQ on it as well. But when I try to run a silent install everything runs.  But…See More
