Resource managers with a durable enlistment must be able to perform recovery if they experience a failure. For more information on recovery, see Performing Recovery. For more information on volatile and durable resources, as well as how to enlist a resource, see Implementing A Resource Manager. For more information on how a resource manager responds to commit notification and prepare the commit in two-phase commit, see Single-Phase and Multi-Phase Transactions.

Resource managers enlisted for participation in a transaction through this method receive two phase commit notifications that correspond to the methods defined on the IEnlistmentNotification interface.
