MSDTC.exe and firewall issues

Posted on 2007-07-23

Hi guys,

I am trying to run queries through MSDTC.exe and I am getting the following error...

The transaction has already been implicitly or explicitly committed or aborted (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8004D00E)

The code works in the Development nvironment, but not in production.  The 2 main differences between the 2 environments are...

1. The production environment is firewalled
2. Production environment consists of 2 load-balanced web-servers

It seems like it might be a firewall issue, but I think I have the firewall configured correctly to allow the data to pass through.  

Any help on the issue will be greatly appreciated

    I finally convinced the consultant that wrote the .dll which uses MSDTC that it is unnecessary and he re-wrote the .dll.  Your links were very helpful though and I appreciate it.  Thanks.
