DTC – New transaction cannot enlist in the specified transaction coordinator

leave a comment »

If you ever worked with DTC then for sure you get error message as shown above. The problem with it is that it is quite hard to track. Today I just want to share quick hint what to check and what is the most popular reason of that error. This most popular issue is DNS resolution. If DTC can not ping by NetBIOS name both machines taking part of transaction then he will return to you error as mentioned. So, before you start digging thru the net, please try just to ping both servers taking part of transaction by their names and check if returned IP is the some as the one you can find in ipconfig /all.

Here is some Microsoft paper around that : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa561924(BTS.20).aspx
