MachineSettingsSection Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents an XML section in a configuration file encapsulating all settings that can be modified only at the machine level. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Transactions.Configuration
Assembly: System.Transactions (in system.transactions.dll)

Public NotInheritable Class MachineSettingsSection
	Inherits ConfigurationSection
Dim instance As MachineSettingsSection

public final class MachineSettingsSection extends ConfigurationSection
public final class MachineSettingsSection extends ConfigurationSection

Property values of this class can only be set in the machine.config file.

An example configuration file used by your transaction application can be as follows,



        <defaultSettings distributedTransactionManagerName="F04M25" timeout="02:00:00"/>

        <machineSettings maxTimeout="02:00:00"/>      



This example specifies the default values of a transaction. Specifically, it sets the the computer name of the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) that is responsible for coordinating all distributed transactions started locally, and the default time after which a transaction times out. In addition, it specifies a setting that can only be modified at the machine level, which is the maximum amount of time allowed before a transaction times out.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
