WHAT I DID:
==========
Attempt 1: I used smartstart to install the O/S.
I patched it.
network DTC was added (as per Doc2)
changed DTC log to 40 mb (as per Doc1)
Rebooted

Attempt 2: I used smartstart to install the O/S.
I patched it.
network DTC was added (as per Doc2)

Attempt n: I've tried various other combinations as exploratory tests as
well.

So I take it your D: drive is a shared disk for the cluster?

Have you looked at http://www.yqcomputer.com/

ow you mention it. I don't know where that D: drive came from.
It was probably the Q: quorum drive before I renamed it... PRIOR to doing
the cluster admin changes.. How did that get there?

had the same problem 3 days ago. I fixed MSDTC error message like
this:
type was AUTOMATIC. You always should change cluster managed recourse
service startup type to MANUAL.


This is all.

hy would it say D: drive? I never had a D: drive.
My D: was a CD rom which was quickly re-assigned to Z: seconds after it was
first installed.

My quorum is a Q: drive.

I've been through oodles of documentation and have printed off reams of
documentation - nothing seems to have worked.
