1 Introduction

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:

  • Subscribe to and receive transaction monitoring information by using the OleTx Transports Protocol [MS-CMPO].

  • 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 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
