DTCPing tool 1717(The interface is unknown.) error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Was trying to troubleshoot MSDTC communication error encountered for my WCF services using the DTCPing tool.

    Anyone has any idea what could be causing the mentioned error in DTCPing when pinging from MACHINE1 (Windows Server 2003) to MACHINE2 (Windows 7)?

    Many Thanks in advance!

    Both machines have following attributes:

    • Firewalls turned off.
    • Not the DNS machines.
    • Windows Event Log Viewer is working normally.

    The DTCPing log files are as per the following:
