Network Access for Distributed Transaction Manager (MSDTC) has been disabled

Some people have been getting this error when deploying the Social Squared forums to SharePoint that is running on Windows Server 2008 r2. Here is how to fix it:

  1. Open Component Services.
  2. Computers -> My Computer -> Distributed Transaction Coordinator -> Local DTC -> Properties.
  3. Security Tab -> Enable Network DTC Access, Allow Remote Clients, Allow Inbound, Allow Outbound, No Authentication Required.
