SYMPTOMS

A Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) transaction commit operation may cause a blocking scenario on itself. In the SQL Server sysprocesses table output, the SQL Server process ID number (SPID) is less than 50 and shows a self block. For example, the sysprocesses table output may show the following block:
SPID 8 blocked by SPID 8

Note MS DTC commit operations always occur on a system task thread.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.

MORE INFORMATION

This problem occurs when the MS DTC commit operation tries to update the sysindexes table with appropriate row modifications. If the original transaction activity obtains an exclusive (EX) lock on the sysobjects table or the sysindexes table, the self block may occur at the time of the DTC commit operation. This condition typically occurs when the original transaction activity creates a table or index and also makes additions or subtractions to the table. One of the triggers of the behavior is the open objects option. Carefully review the number of open objects options that the instance of SQL Server 2000 may experience at the time of the problem and the sp_configure setting.
