MS DTC could not correctly process a DC Promotion/Demotion event ID 53258

After installing new Windows 2008 Domain controller and moving the FSMO roles to it I found a warning message on my Windows 2003 DC

Event Type:      Warning

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      MSDTC
Event Category:      SVC
Event ID:      53258

User:            N/A
Description:
MS DTC could not correctly process a DC Promotion/Demotion event. MS DTC will continue to function and will use the existing security settings. Error Specifics: d:\nt\com\complus\dtc\dtc\adme\uiname.cpp:9351, Pid: 5392
No Callstack, CmdLine: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msdtc.exe


To resolve this issue do the blow steps:

  • Click Start -> Administrative Tools -> Component Services.
    Right click “My Computer” in the window pane and select Properties.
  • Click the MSDTC Tab.
  • Click the “Security Configuration” button, a dialog box appears. Click “OK”.
  • Click “OK” on the “My Computer Properties” box; this will take you back to the console.
  • Right click “My Computer” and select “Stop MS DTC” (this stops the MSDTC service.
  • Again, right click “My Computer” and select “Start MS DTC”.
By following the above steps, it appears that this sets the MS DTC defaults resolving the error messages.
To make sure open the Event Viewer–> Application
