How do I configure MSDTC properly for AD software?



On all servers involved in your Summation, eDiscovery, or Quin-C setup, enable the following Security settings in your Local DTC Properties

Click Start → Administrative Tools → Component Services → Computers → My Computer → Distributed Transaction Coordinator → Local DTC  

(Win7 : Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools)



Several issues will arise (including a failure when creating cases) if MSDTC has not been configured properly.
