MSDTC is disabled by default (windows 2003 - onwards) and I want to have it enabled for an application I'm developing that requires distributed transactions.

I don't believe there are any security issues with enabling it, but does SF know of any security issues with enabling the DTC?

Cheers

Ollie

I don't know of any security issues with enabling MS DTC. If you require distributed transactions, then you'll need MS DTC, no way around it even if there were.

Agreed. You can leave it disabled if you don't need it (the less services the better), but there are no reasons to fear it. –  Massimo Sep 1 '09 at 23:34
    
I've used it successfully for many years. Just make sure you are inside a firewall. –  AJ. Sep 2 '09 at 0:03
