Access to transaction statistics/list

Access to transaction statistics/list

Access to transaction statistics/list

Does anyone know if there is a way of letting a user view the transaction list and statistics for a remote server in MMC without granting them local admin rights on the server?

RE: Access to transaction statistics/list

Why can't you use the MTS Admin COM library to do this and write a VB app that gives them the info?

For MTS 2.0 and in VB, I would add the MTS 2.0 Admin Type Library.  I believe this is the correct one to use for this...

Thanks Tom.

Unless I'm missing something here, I don't think the information is available in the MTS 2.0 Admin Type Library.
Even when iterating through the package and component collections the information from the component status view in MMC (number of objects, activated and in-call) isn't available.

I'm talking here about the transaction statistics and transaction list views which supply information from MSDTC.
Even if a user has been added to the Administrator role on the System package, they are still unable to access these views for a remote machine unless they have been added to that machine's local Administrator group.

We have a need to let support staff look for transactions that might be 'In Doubt' or stuck in the 'Preparing' phase without giving them complete administrative rights to the production servers.
