Return Value

The Whereabouts of the distributed transaction manager that System.Transactions uses.  

The Whereabouts contains an address that describes the location of a transaction manager. This permits two transaction managers to communicate with one another and thereby propagate a transaction from one system to the other. The information returned by this method can be used to provide location information for push model transaction propagation with the GetExportCookie method.

For more information on different propagation models, see the Remarks section of the TransactionInterop class.
