This specification specifies the MSDTC Connection Manager: OleTx Management Protocol, which enables the remote management of a transaction manager.
Remote management allows a user to do the following:
Get and set transaction manager configuration information contained in registry keys by using the Windows Remote Registry Protocol [MS-RRP] or the Failover Cluster: Management API (ClusAPI) Protocol [MS-CMRP]. Collectively, these two protocols are referred to herein as the Registry Protocol.
Manage the life cycle of the transaction manager by using the Service Control Manager Remote Protocol [MS-SCMR].
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
