Subject "Unable to Attach Service" error
Author Jim McKay

Win2k pro SP4, FB v:

Have not used FB in a year or so... worked fine then on this machine.

Trying to connect to the (local) server(s) now, I'm getting error
(subject line) or something similiar from one of several DB admin
tools. Now in BDS '06, no DB access (IB/IBX/DBExpr) period.

I have a successful PING to localhost (set up in HOST file). Also
tried troubleshooting suggesting in Helen's book, no luck.

My system event log has repeated entry:

Error: Service Control Manager
Event: 7024
The Distributed Transaction Coordinator service terminated with
service-specific error 3221229584.

Could this be it?

Poking around, seems most common problem here is firewall software,
but I have none installed & AFAIK W2k has none natively, correct?
Ok, thanks for any help here.
