Help with error: "Communication with the underlying transaction manager has failed"
Posted on 2006-11-17
I'm getting the above error when trying to commit to more than a single table using TransactionScope in vb.net
I'm using datasets to handle my DAL, with the code autogenerated by Visual Studio. The error occurs when trying to do an update by calling TableAdapter.update(dataset) on a the first tableadapter, when changes are made to two seperate datatables.
The error does not occur if using just direct SQL statements in multiple commands.
(I'm guessing this indicates that the TableAdapter is opening two connections, hence promoting the transaction to a distributed transaction...which is a little disappointing given the updates are both at the same database)
The commit works fine when only updating a single table
Both client and server are running Win Server 2k3
I can successfuly do a DHCPing from both sides
I can ping both sides
There are no firewalls active on either the client or the server
The database is SQL Server 2005 Express edition.
Anyone got any suggestions?
