Distributed Transactions across Linked Servers

P: n/a
Hello.

One of our database developers is running into a problem when trying
to get distributed transactions to work across linked servers. (SQL
2005 to SQL 2000).

The specific error message is:

"Msg 8501, Level 16, State 3, Procedure _Test2, Line 12 MSDTC on
server 'MSDB02' is unavailable."

I've check to confirm that the DTC service is running on both
machines. We've read over these article/discussions:

Any suggestions on what we can do to trouble-shoot this?

Thank you.
