Are you running a cluster..?  Perhaps this will help..

When moving "MSDTC" resource in Cluster Administrator, the move fails and the cluster attempts to move the resource group back to the original node. This typically occurs when moving the MSDTC resource to a newly created cluster node. As the instructions in the Event log suggests, running "comclust.exe" and restarting the MSDTC service in Cluster Administrator will correct this problem. Also check Q305742 to see what Microsoft says about this event.

First, are you actually running a server cluster..??  If so, you probably have the cluster adminstration installed..  If not, you can install Cluster Admin..
