Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator Service Stoppage
Updated: February 22, 2008
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator service (MSDTC) coordinates transactions, regardless of failures that may occur during the process, so that the work is committed as a single transaction even if the work spans multiple resource managers on multiple computers.
MSDTC is a Windows service. By default, the service is configured as a manual service rather than as an automatic service. However, most applications demand-start the service as needed. If necessary, the administrator can start or stop the service with the Services administrative tool.
