MSDTC and Delete transactions

I had a question reagrding MSDTC usage. I know that MSDTC will enlist
each connection transactions as it's own (take ownership) and
commit/abort accordingly.

However I'm not sure what would happen where I have a stored proc with
input parameters and 2 Delete commands on 2 different tables. In this
case, would MSDTC also enforce ACID rules when 1 cmd succeeds and 2nd
aborts ? In the script for the Stored Proc, there is no checking for
@@ERROR value. There are just DELETE statement and a plain RETURN.

In a normal stored procedure if you have:

DELETE tbl2 WHERE ....

you could very well end up with only one of the DELETE statements
being carried out, becuase many errors in SQL Server aborts the
current statment only.

A distributed transaction may be different. At least in some
situations there is a requirement that SET XACT_ABORT is ON. With
this settings all errors but compile errors abort the batch and
rollback the transaction.

But exactly what happens, I will have to admit that I don't know. The
best advice I can give is to test a scenario where one of the DELETE
statement fails. No, wait, the best is to either add checks on @@error
or make sure XACT_ABORT is ON.

Hi - I have 4 webservers in my webfarm. All Win2k3 web edition. Before yesterday, none of them were service packed. I have now applied SP2 to two of them, and I'm getting a very weird MSDTC error on them now. The error occurs when I attempt a series of SQL statements wrapped in a TransactionScope(). It's executing against a different server, so this is where it's elevated to a distributed transaction.
