Yesterday a client reported an issue that they are unable to create schedule task on a SBS 2011 server, upon checking I found that the schedule task wizard launches fine and goes almost till completion and just as we click on finish we get the following error.
Transaction support within the specified resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error.
I felt very lucky when with the first google search I stumbled upon various blogs and articles including Microsoft suggesting the corruption in transaction manager log and the following command (from command prompt) to resolve the issue quick.
fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
Pumped with adrenaline, I performed the command (from command prompt) and rebooted the server but unfortunately the issue persisted upon the reboot. I did try the reset a couple more times & of course multiple reboots with no success.
I went ahead and checked the event viewer which also was giving multiple error while loading. I did find multiple errors in it, mostly about Windows search service failing the start mostly because of again some transaction log. Refer the error events below
