Windows XP Services - Distributed Transaction Coordinator Service

Windows XP Services - Distributed Transaction Coordinator Service


Microsoft Description:

Coordinates transactions that span multiple resource managers, such as databases, message queues, and file systems. If this service is stopped, these transactions will not occur. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.


Importance of Distributed Transaction Coordinator Service

  • Coordinates transactions that are distributed across multiple computer systems and/or resource managers, such as databases, message queues, file systems, or other transaction-protected resource managers. The Distributed Transaction Coordinator is necessary if transactional components are going to be configured through Component Services (COM+). It is also required for transactional queues in Message Queuing (MSMQ) and Microsoft SQL Server operations that span multiple systems.

  • Closely related to Distributed Link Tracking Client discussed previously. Really serves no purpose for home user systems.
