  • Like the error says, open the dcomcnfg.exe, expand till you see the MS DTC settings, right-click on Local and go to Properties and then check the network access box. Then a restart is usually good to completely refresh MSDTC.

    This needs to be set on the SQL and BizTalk servers.

  • Hi,

    I'm getting this exact error that rksingh described.  My issue doesn't appear to be with DTC.  I ran the DTCTester and everything works.  I have the steps to uninstall and install the BizTalk application in a PowerShell script.  If I run it locally, everything succeeds.  If I run it remotely with PSExec, it fails.  I am able to access the database fine because other commands are workings.  It is only failing on the BTSTask ImportApp and RemoveApp commands.  I also tried to use the PSBizTalk Provider (, however I also get the following error: "Unable to commit changes to the BizTalk management database"

    I would appreciate any help.

  • I was finally able to get this working with PSExec.  I had to use the -e option to have it not load the user environment.  This doesn't seem intuitive that this would have resolved it.  Now both the BTSTask ImportApp and RemoveApp are working fine.   Also the PSBizTalk cmdlets work with this too.

    I hope this helps,
