Failed to deploy system assembly .." Microsoft.BizTalk.GlobalPropertySchemas.dll"

This may occur when applying a BizTalk configuration file in silent or interactive mode. The full error (from the log in silent) is:
Failed to deploy system assembly "C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004\Microsoft.BizTalk.GlobalPropertySchemas.dll".
The rest of the error message is informative as well; giving you a hint on where to go:
“The network clients for the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) Network must have the remote clients/transactions option enabled. The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions.”
This is a DTC issue; in this case, DTC isn’t properly configured on a non-local SQL Server. Help and troubleshooting will give you a text string containing “You must enable network clients DTC access before configuring BizTalk Server“. Check your installation steps and ensure you:
- On the SQL Server, navigate to Component Services, Computers.
- Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties, MSDTC.
- Click Security Configuration, Network DTC Access.
- Ensure Network Clients is selected.
To save time, perform / confirm these steps on the BizTalk server as well. Failing to do so will generate a different error (which I’ll publish when I see it), but you may as well perform the steps on both servers at the same time to cover all bases.
