Description

The Stop-Dtc cmdlet stops the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) instance that the DtcName parameter specifies.

Examples

Example 1: Stop a local DTC instance

This command uses the **Get-Dtc** cmdlet to view the status of the local DTC instance. 
PS C:\> Get-Dtc -DtcName "Local"
__GENUS           : 2
__CLASS           : DtcInstance
__SUPERCLASS      :
__DYNASTY         : DtcInstance
__RELPATH         : 
__PROPERTY_COUNT  : 7
__DERIVATION      : {}
__SERVER          : 
__NAMESPACE       : 
__PATH            : 
DtcName           : Local
KtrmEndpointCid   : b6628c9f-46ff-404d-a0fa-62657cb828af
OleTxEndpointCid  : f3027ea1-4ee5-45b5-a01c-06f41221111b
Status            : Started
UisEndpointCid    : e9385758-8092-4dd7-8b09-587aa427a58e
VirtualServerName : Contoso093
XAEndpointCid     : ced49d85-82a9-49d9-a6ee-8c5b4bd7b5bd

This command stops the local DTC instance. The first command shows that the instance is started, and, therefore, it is safe to stop that instance. 
PS C:\> Stop-Dtc -DtcName "Local"

This command uses **Get-Dtc**, again, to confirm that the DTC instance is stopped.
PS C:\> Get-Dtc -DtcName "Local"
__GENUS           : 2
__CLASS           : DtcInstance
__SUPERCLASS      :
__DYNASTY         : DtcInstance
__RELPATH         :
__PROPERTY_COUNT  : 7
__DERIVATION      : {}
__SERVER          : 
__NAMESPACE       :
__PATH            : 
DtcName           : Local
KtrmEndpointCid   : b6628c9f-46ff-404d-a0fa-62657cb828af
OleTxEndpointCid  : f3027ea1-4ee5-45b5-a01c-06f41221111b
Status            : Stopped
UisEndpointCid    : e9385758-8092-4dd7-8b09-587aa427a58e
VirtualServerName : Contoso093
XAEndpointCid     : ced49d85-82a9-49d9-a6ee-8c5b4bd7b5bd

This example stops the local DTC instance. To stop a different instance, specify a different value for the DtcName parameter.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DtcName

Specifies the DTC instance to stop. If you do not specify this parameter, or if you specify a value of Local, this cmdlet stops the local DTC instance.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Recursive

Indicates that the cmdlet stops any services that rely on the specified DTC instance, such as Microsoft SQL Server.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
