I'm using msde. On the little icon in task tray, you have under current
service, a choice of mssqlserver, and another choice is msdtc. What is
msdtc? And what is sqlserver agent?

DTC = Distributed Transaction Coordinator. You need DTC when you are
running distributed transactions. That is transactions that involve more
than one server (and the other server does not have to be an SQL Server;
it could be Oracle), and you need two-phase commit. That is, both
servers must commit or rollback the transaction.
And what is sqlserver agent?

SQL Server Agent is a tool that permits you run jobs. These jobs can
run on a regular schedule or they can be one-offs that are only run on
demand. Even for a one-off you can schedule a job to run later, for
instance in the wee hours of night.

Standard usage of Agent in about any production system is to schedule
backups. But you can also use Agent for other things that are to run
regularly. An Agent job consists of one or more steps, and a step can
be a batch of T-SQL statements, but can also be a set of Windows
command-line commands. I think you can run Active-X too.

Hello 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...

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.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
