Fix: An error in a remote procedure call does not roll back the local operation

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one file that you can download. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that are included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
If a distributed transaction is opened, and a remote procedure call in that transaction fails and rolls back, later changes that are made at the local server in the scope of the distributed transaction may successfully commit although the changes should have rolled back.

STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.
MORE INFORMATION
The following remote stored procedure fails with a "divide-by-zero" error message:
	CREATE PROCEDURE p_TESTNAME_STATEMENTABORT	AS	BEGIN		SELECT 1/0	END
When you execute this stored procedure remotely in a distributed transaction, later operations may succeed, although the error in the remote procedure should roll back the whole distributed transaction:
BEGIN distributed TRAN	EXEC [cmathews10\sql2ksp3].master.dbo.p_TESTNAME_STATEMENTABORT	SELECT @@errorCOMMIT TRANgo

Server: Msg 8134, Level 16, State 1, Line 0Divide by zero error encountered.The transaction active in this session has been committed or aborted by another session.            ----------- 8134(1 row(s) affected)Server: Msg 3902, Level 16, State 1, Line 0The COMMIT TRANSACTION request has no corresponding BEGIN TRANSACTION.[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionCheckForData (CheckforData()).Server: Msg 11, Level 16, State 1, Line 0General network error. Check your network documentation.Connection Broken
The SET XACT_ABORT ON statement does not correct this behavior. This behavior may be intermittent.
