I recently encountered an error during some troubleshooting related to BizTalk. The was new to me and I wanted to share the solution with the community. So, in the future, if anyone faces this issue then they can try this option as well.
When I was trying to expand the applications, the below error popped up and it was failed to load the applications.
There could be multiple causes for this issue, and the most common cause connectivity issue between the BizTalk application and database. So to troubleshoot this issue we have to check the connectivity and then event log for any type of errors.
In such cases, first check if you are able to connect BizTalk databases, mainly BizTalkMgmtDb. If you can, then your connection is not the problem.,
Now, the second step is to check if the DTC (Distributed Transaction Coordinator) service is running on the BizTalk application server. If DTC service is stopped, then start it; if it's already running, then just restart the DTC service
Once issue resolved, refresh the BizTalk admin console and, boom, you're all set to go!
