Hi

I am getting event ID 4437 although the account used to log in is a domain account I have not joined this server as a DC to the domain yet would that be the reason why?

Here is a description of the error:

Event ID: 4437
Source MSDTC  
Type Error  
Description The account that the MS DTC service is running under is invalid. This can happen if the service account information has been changed using the Services snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC). MS DTC service will continue to start. Please make sure that the MS DTC service account information is updated using the component Services Explorer.

No, not at all.

Open the Services applet.
Find the service called, Distributed Transaction Coodinator.
Double click it.
Select the Log On tab.
The account the service should be using is: NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService

I am trying to find out where that account lives so you can select it.
