I've installed the cluster configuration on my NODE1. I have the following Groups; Cluster Group, Exchange Group and MSDTC Group. Everything was fine during the installation but after a reboot, the Cluster Administration could not connect the cluster anymore!?

Anyone any idea?

I have the following errors in the event viewer; Cluster resource Distributed Transaction Coordinator timed out. If the pending timeout is too short for this resource, consider increasing the pending timeout value.

and; Cluster resource 'Distributed Transaction Coordinator' in Resource Group 'MSDTC Group' failed.
