Execute stored procedure (linked server) within another stored procedure

I have 2 linked servers and need to call a stored procedure on 1 linked server within a stored procedure of another server.  Everytime I attempt this i get the following error:
[OLE/DB provider returned message: New transaction cannot enlist in the specified transaction coordinator. ]
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'SQLOLEDB' ITransactionJoin::JoinTransaction returned 0x8004d00a].
The operation could not be performed because the OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' was unable to begin a distributed transaction.

I know the 2 servers are linked because i can execute the remote stored procedure in a sql editor but not within another stored procedure.  I also followed all steps outlined in: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816701  but continue to get this exception. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

My guess is that both stored procedures use a transaction. If you execute one inside the other, those transactions will interfere. Try removing the use of transactions from at least one of them.

First, you should check that MSDTC service is up and running

Then, in linked server properties / server options, check the RPC and RPC out, after all you try to run a stored proc on another comp.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

sorry :D
i did not read all
ok.
so you did as in the article.

but then,
you still have to make some configs on both servers.
i assume that you have win2003

so, you have to go to:
Administrative Tools / Component services / Computer / My Computer

Right click on My Computer / Properties
And there is MSDTC tab.

There you should see Transaction Configuration and a button Security Configuration.

Clik the button, and in the window that appears, there are some options:
You check all "Allow/Enable" options
And there are 3 choices for Authentication, and you choose "No Authentication required."

Im not sure what u mean by removing a transaction from one of the procedures.

popa duhu -
RPC and RPC Out are both checked in the server options of the linked server.  I do not see MSDTC in the list of services however it enabled under the application server (Enable network DTC access - checked)

The code that is causing a problem is this:

Procedure x (on server b2)
   ..... some code
   Insert Into #Temp
                EXEC j19.location.eg.sp_LocTagSearch @Tags
  .... some more code
end

Now when on server b2 in sql editor I can execute:
EXEC j19.location.eg.sp_LocTagSearch 'X'
And this returns results as expected.

I set all all/enable options as well as the no authentication required on both servers and still receive:
[OLE/DB provider returned message: New transaction cannot enlist in the specified transaction coordinator. ]
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'SQLOLEDB' ITransactionJoin::JoinTransaction returned 0x8004d00a].
The operation could not be performed because the OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' was unable to begin a distributed transaction.

sorry,
when i said MSDTC i meant Distributed Transaction Coordinator (msdtc.exe is the file name)
So, there should be a service named Distributed Transaction Coordinator

After you checked everything on both servers in Component Services, you should restart the DTC service on both servers.
