BizTalk 2016 Installer Crash

Had another weird one today while installing BizTalk Server 2016 on Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016. When applying the configuring to the server the installer crashed out while applying the BAM Portal settings. The event viewer had nothing useful to offer, only highlighting the particular DLL in question that had caused the error. The log file output to the AppData location had something useful though:

Cannot alter the role ‘NSSubscriberAdmin’, because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

Turns out that this issue was also present in BizTalk 2013… If you encounter this, you’ll need to log into SQL Server Management Studio, expand the BAMAlertsApplication database, expand Security to get the Roles node. Right-click this and choose “Add Role” and add the missing NSSubscriberAdmin role, owned by dbo. Once done, re-try applying the BizTalk server configuration and it should all go through fine.
