1.6 Applicability Statement

This protocol is applicable to scenarios that require the management and monitoring of a transaction manager. The protocol supports the reading and setting of configuration values as well as the subscription and publication of transaction statistics and status.

This protocol requires network topologies in which the MSDTC Connection Manager: OleTx Transports Protocol [MS-CMPO], the MSDTC Connection Manager: OleTx Multiplexing Protocol [MS-CMP], the Service Control Manager Remote Protocol [MS-SCMR], the Windows Remote Registry Protocol [MS-RRP], and the Failover Cluster: Management API (ClusAPI) Protocol [MS-CMRP] function as a viable network transport for establishing many short-lived connection exchanges that accomplish specific tasks.
