Distributed Transaction Error on Connection open

Distributed Transaction Error on Connection open

(OP)
Hi,

Our webserver and database reside on different servers in the same LAN. For the past couple of days on pages that have the directive @Transaction=REQUIRED we have been getting the error

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '8004d00a'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Distributed transaction error


This error happens right when connection to the DSN is opened.

The ping between the two servers is working fine. When I look inside MTS, I can see the active transactions go up by 1 on the webserver but not on the database server.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks,
Shweta
