Indigo transaction tests do not work correctly after you apply the hotfix that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 921981.
The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) intermittently crashes on a IA-64-based cluster computer.
The client breaks into the debugger and throws an ArgumentException exception.
DCOM may cause TCP port exhaustion on the client side. This behavior occurs when DCOM is in nonsecure mode (AuthLevel="none").

Streams in transaction sets do not have their caches emptied after consolidation occurs.
Memory fragmentation occurs in the Msdtcprx.dll library.
The MS DTC shuts down because an inconsistent state occurs.
You cannot view or edit the MachineLaunchRestriction and MachineAccessRestriction settings in the Distributed COM Configuration (Dcomcnfg.exe) tool.
