Thanks, wonderfull articles, I managed to have data in BAM, however, the
"Alert" button is greyed out.
How can I activate it?

In the several docs, I read, I didn't find where schema and SSIS packages
are described?
Thanks again

Hi Salam,

For the 1st question, my understanding is currently SSIS and BAM tools must
be installed on the same machine. I've seen a fromer case that a customer
has a multi server environment. He need to make the BAM features available
on all 5 servers, so he should install SSIS and SSNS on all the 5 servers.

Please also refer to Richard Seroter's blog about BAM deployment at below.

Production-Ready BAM Security and Deployment

For the 2nd question, have you opened the BAMPrimaryImport database to
check if there is any corresponding activities tracked in it?

The only decent tutorial of BAM I know is the one included BizTalk Server
2006 Tutorials.

Tutorial 5: Business Activity Monitoring

And some references:

Implementing BAM Solutions

Whitepaper: BizTalk Server 2006 Business Activity Monitoring

Have a nice weekend.
