Hi all

I have a problem with SQL 2000 Jobs
They seem not to work only on my Windows Server 2003 SQL Failover Cluster
The Jobs (replications) exit with error code 8501 which is related to the MSDTC resource.
My MSDTC is set up fine in my event viewer I have no error message about the MSDTC and also when I run on the active Node "Net Start MSDTC" it will state that the MSDTC is already running

On my other none-cluster Windows Server 2003 SQL I fixed the problem by turning off the RPC security (set the Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSDTC\TurnOffRpcSecurity to 1)

I followed all Microsoft guidelines in how to set the SQL 2000 failover cluster including the MSDTC settings: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;301600

but it doesn't seems to work, I also tried to add the TurnOffRpcSecurity registry key on both nodes (and restarted the servers) but it didn't help...

I will be happy to here some of your suggestions on my email: experts-exchange1@lesoho.com

Thanks

Gil Davidman

Did you run comclust.exe to configure DTC for clustering?

How did you set up replication?

How did you set up replication?

Do any jobs that don't depend on DTC work?

All my jobs works with DTC ,from the cluster machine to other machines all works but from other machines to the cluster
it does not work.
If I use regular SQL2000 edition( not cluster) and put HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSDTC\TurnOffRpcSecurity with value "1"
everything works fine.
Should I enable run some command such as comclust.exe for windows2003EE ?

Thanks

Hey, infogate85, sorry I lost track of this question, and glad you found a solution. Since you answered it yourself, post a question in the Community Support topic area and ask that the question be PAQ'd with a refund of your points. I think they can do that, rather than deleting your question, and then your solution can remain available to others searching EE.

Cheers, JD
