We installed SQL 2012 recently... linked server between SQL 2012 and SQL 2008 using SQLNCLI11 is working fine; however, we have issues creating linked server between SQL 2000 and SQL 2012.
Msg 8522, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) has stopped this transaction.


I am not sure why I am getting this error when the linked server with SQL 2008 is doing fine and there is not MS DTC error also linked server using the same SQL 2000 server with SQL 2008 server is working fine as well so I don't think there is issue with configuring MSDTC.
Thanks a lot for your help.

You have to make sure SQLNCLI10 is used, as SQLNCLI11 doesn't support connections to SQL Server 2000. Which provider did you choose in the Linked Server menu?

Thanks a lot for the response. Yes I am picking SQLNCLI10 and not SQLNCLI11. I am able to see the tables and views once the connection is established, but I am not able to do the SELECT as it gives the MC DTC error.

The same SQL 2000 and SQL 2012 are working fine with SQL 2008 when we create linked server, so I dont think there is issue with MC DTC configuration... What you think might be the issue? Do you suggest that I should install SQl2008 and then upgrade to SQL2012 instead of installing a new copy?

We had similar issues(same error) a few jobs ago when upgrading the OS and SQL same day. Maybe you did, or didnt also upgrade the OS, but our problem was the DTC co-ordinator. We dug and dug blaming sql until finally found an error with enough info to reveal MSDTC was the problem.

We added both machine names and tweaked DTC on both servers, doing nothing to sql at all, if it's enabled already maybe you need other changes. Each jump in versions has impending consequences and I've learned never discount cause something worked version to version especially in this case, being way apart.

Koen, have you been able to get it to work?

Just curious since there is no upgrade path from 2000 to 2012 and 2000 compat mode is not even supported in 2012. That in mind makes me think that linked servers from 2012 down to 2000 are not supported either.

I'm not the OP, so I don't know :-)

Thanks Guys for the response. I have not been able to fix this problem. I will try to tweak MSDTC today if that doesnt help... planning to instal SQL 2008 and then upgrade.

I knew that.

I was curious if you had ever tried to create a linked server between 2k and 2k12 yourself and gotten it to work. :-)

Ah ok.
No I haven't created a linked server to SQL2000.
I replied to this thread originally because I know the 2012 native client is unable to connect to 2000.

I can also see the catalogs; however, when I run a select I get the same error:


Msg 8522, Level 16, State 3, Line 1 Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) has stopped this transaction.
