This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Have you tried deleting the resource and starting over? You can also see logs pertaining to the cluster – Sam Aug 10 '09 at 19:59
What are in the error logs? Probably best place to start to see what is failing. – K. Brian Kelley Sep 7 '09 at 14:26
Have your tried using dtcping? Its really useful for troublshooting DTC issues See: for a download – James Woolfenden May 1 '13 at 13:05

Try deleting the MSDTC resource, enabling network DTC access in both nodes and creating the resource again.

What are you using as storage for MSDTC?

Are there errors in the Windows Event Log after the failed attempts to bring the resource online? What do they say?

The account using the FTC has to have full control on the cluster. Read on windows 2008; right click the cluster in cluster manager and select properties
