Facing MSDTC related issues while archiving data from one database server machine to another databas

  
I have a question with respect to distributed transactions when carried out between two database server machines on the same network.   Consider there are two database server machines \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ and \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\. Now we have to archive the data from one database server to other database server.   Let us suppose the database server \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ is the live production database server and \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\ is Long term storage database server. Now data from \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ needs to be archived into the database server \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\.   So I have written a dynamic stored procedure which includes distributed transaction (begin Tran, commit Tran, rollback            Tran) coding in it.   Now initially when I executed the procedure, it gave some of the following errors   1) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "\DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\" returned message "The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions.". Msg 7391, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 The operation could not be performed because OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "\DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\" was unable to begin a distributed transaction.

UTC Offset Lookup Table for different Time Zones with Daylight Saving.

  

Hi,

I am trying to populate a table for on SQL 2008 Server which should have start datetime and end datetime for daylight saving for various world time zones. So that I can lookup if a particular date is between startdate and enddate and get UTC offset.

SQL Server Database Transaction

  
A transaction is a group of SQL commands executed together as a single component of work to be accomplished. If all of these commands succeed, then a transaction is committed - the changes to the data are made final. If any of the commands within a transaction fail, then the entire transaction is cancelled, or in SQL Server terms, the transaction will be rolled back.

Transactions are one of the things that keep your data safe, but they're not necessarily easy to understand. Here's some help:
