(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256986/ )Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
When you run the Configuration Wizard (ConfigFramework.exe) in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you may receive a message that is similar to the following:You receive this message before the progress bar indicates that the configuration process has completed.
When you click Retry, the same message appears. When you click Cancel, the Configuration Wizard rolls back the BizTalk Server configuration.
This issue may occur when the remote procedure call (RPC) security that is used by the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) fails. The RPC security failure occurs between the computer that is running BizTalk Server 2004 and the computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2000.
Note The BizTalk Server databases are located on the computer that is running SQL Server 2000.
By default, when a Distribution Transaction Coordinator (DTC) computer is not running in a Microsoft Windows domain, distributed transactions fail. This behavior occurs because the RPC security that DTC uses does not work in this environment. Therefore, distributed transactions will fail if the DTC computer is not located in a trusted domain.
By default in Microsoft Windows Server 2003, RPC security is turned on. Therefore, distributed transaction operations will fail if the computer is located in a workgroup environment or in a domain that is not a trusted domain.
To resolve this issue, move the computer to a trusted domain. To move a computer to a different domain, use the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT). For more information about the ADMT, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
Important These steps may increase your security risk. These steps may also make your computer or your network more vulnerable to attack by malicious users or by malicious software such as viruses. We recommend the process that this article describes to enable programs to operate as they are designed to, or to implement specific program capabilities. Before you make these changes, we recommend that you evaluate the risks that are associated with implementing this process in your particular environment. If you choose to implement this process, take any appropriate additional steps to help protect your system. We recommend that you use this process only if you really require this process.
If you cannot move the computer to a trusted domain, you can turn off RPC security.
Warning Verify that the computer is in an isolated environment that has a firewall before you turn off RPC security.
To turn off RPC security, use one of the following methods:
