Unable to start MSDTC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I am facing problem of, unable to start MSDTC even thought I have reinstall MSDTC. Once before I able to start it, but unable to see "Local DTC" node under component services. Below is the error message captured from event log.

    EventID - 4156

    String message: RPC raised an exception with a return code RPC_S_INVALIDA_ARG..

    Event ID - 4358

    The MS DTC Connection Manager is unable to register with RPC to use one of LRPC, TCP/IP, or UDP/IP. Please ensure that RPC is configured properly. If "ServerTcpPort" registry key is configured(DWORD value under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSDTC for local DTC instance or under cluster hive for clustered DTC instance), please verify if the configured port is valid and the port is not already in use by a different component. Error Specifics:hr = 0x80070057, d:\w7rtm\com\complus\dtc\dtc\cm\src\iomgrsrv.cpp:2523, CmdLine: C:\Windows\system32\msdtc.exe, Pid: 3644

    Event ID - 4356

  • Root Cause:


    Some incorrect register key about RPC dynamic port resulting in MSDTC behaves unexpectedly


    Solution: ===============

    1. Delete all the register keys about RPC dynamic port you inserted manually.

    2. Configure the ports via UI

    3 . Reboot the server.
