This article explains how to resolve the issue causing Event ID 8607 for BizTalk Accelerator for HL7: Unable to log message "A message was received of type http..."  to the event log due to exception: "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it".


This issue is caused by the HL7 Logging Windows Service being stopped.


Under Windows Services, locate "HL7 Logging Service" and enable it. It is also a good idea to make sure it is set to start automatically.


We hope this article helps resolve this sometimes puzzling BizTalk HL7 error.
