While setting up vCAC 6.0 in my home lab, I encountered the following error when trying to deploy a machine from a blueprint. Error requesting machine. Inner Exception: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. Base Exception: The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8004D025) I found a VMware KB article for an earlier version along similar lines which requires configuring some MSDTC settings on the SQL server holding the vCAC database.
