"Unable to Attach Service"


Jim McKay

Win2k pro SP4, behind router (no software firewall).

I have several databases (FireBird/InterBase) which I have not used
in a year or so... worked fine then. Trying to connect to the (local)
servers now, I'm getting error:

Unable to attach service

PING to localhost (set up in HOST file) is successful.

My system event log has repeated entry:

Error: Service Control Manager
Event: 7024
The Distributed Transaction Coordinator service terminated with
service-specific error 3221229584.

Could this be it?

Poking around, seems most common problem here is firewall software,
but I have none installed & AFAIK W2k has none natively, correct?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
