Unanswered: distributed transaction error - help urgent
i have two remote servers connected to each other through the linked servers.
i can run querries or even perform inserts as far as its not inside a transaction
but when i am trying to run distribted transaction but it keeps on returning the same msg.
Server: Msg 7391, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
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].
i have configured the firewall, made sure the DTC service is started on both and enabled. they both have the same Sp packs, same config.
