    Unanswered: Distributed transaction

    Hi all,
    I am trying to merge data of 2 tables on different servers with an insert statement.

    INSERT INTO SERVER1.db.owner.table
    select s2.* from SERVER2.db.owner.table as s2
    LEFT JOIN SERVER1.db.owner.table as s1
    ON s1.key=s2.key
    where s1.key is null

    I got this error.
    The operation could not be performed because the OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' was unable to begin a distributed transaction.
    [OLE/DB provider returned message: New transaction cannot enlist in the specified transaction coordinator. ]
    OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'SQLOLEDB' ITransactionJoin::JoinTransaction returned 0x8004d00a].

    while the select query is giving the result.
    I have done simmilar inserts on some other tables which worked fine

    I have created sp_addlinkedserver.
    and DTC set on both servers.

    any help will be greatly appreciated

    Did you execute this on Server1 or Server2? What OS and sp are on the respective servers?

    Are you doing it within a transaction? You can successfully bypass engagement of MSDTC by preceeding your INSERT with SET IMPLICIT_TRANSACTIONS OFF.
    "The data in a record depends on the Key to the record, the Whole Key, and
    nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."
