There are number of factors that may become the barrier to Distributed DBMS. The basic failure or barrier to the Distributed DBMS are listed as mentioned below :

1.Site failure.
2.Loss or message or corrupt message.
3. Communication barrier.
4.Network disconnection or partition.

The system uses TCP for these failures as message corruption normally goes with corrupted files.
Even if any two websites are not connected directly, the connection is routed which may be lost if any interruption occurs.
