MSDTC on server 'Server' is unavailable.

Just a quick post on an error that I got today...
 
 
Msg 8501, Level 16, State 3, Line 3
MSDTC on server 'ODCLG29' is unavailable.
 
 
That means the "Distributed Transaction Coordinator" service is not running.
 
ways to get to it...
 
Type "services.msc" in the run or search command.
or go to Control Panel --> administrative tools ---> Services
 
 
look for Distributed Transaction Coordinator, you may double click to start it or right click and select start.
