remote proc trans Option

Use the remote proc trans option to protect the actions of a server-to-server procedure through a Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) transaction. Set remote proc trans to 1 to provide a MS DTC-coordinated distributed transaction that protects the ACID (atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable) properties of transactions. Sessions begun after setting this option to 1 inherit the configuration setting as their default.

This feature will be removed in the next version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. 

This option is provided for compatibility with earlier versions of Microsoft SQL Server for applications that use remote stored procedures. Instead of issuing remote stored procedure calls, use distributed queries that reference linked servers, which are defined by using sp_addlinkedserver.

The setting takes effect immediately without a server restart.
