SYMPTOMS

An abort of a Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) transaction during tempdb activity, may result in 7105 errors, retail assertions, and potentially a failure during rollback in tempdb that may cause the server to shutdown.

Hotfix

NOTE: The following hotfix was created prior to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2.

The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:
   Version     File name       Platform
   -------------------------------------
   8.00.430    Sqlservr.exe    i386

WORKAROUND

This problem has occurred in cases where the application's distributed transaction timeout causes the DTC manager to abort the transaction.

To work around the problem, eliminate the cause of the timeouts or increase the timeout value.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 2000. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2.
