We have added an MSDTC resource to the SQL Server 2008 cluster group on Windows 2008 cluster.  It is giving a default name (based on the cluster group). I didn't find a way to rename this resource. Can someone tell me how to rename an MSDTC cluster resource on Windows 2008?

Does the MSDTC show up under services and applications under failover cluster manager?

If so from the properties select one can change the name, will have to register the new name with DNS.

Worst case one should be able to rename resources via command line:
CLUSTER [[/CLUSTER:]cluster-name] RES[OURCE] <options>

CLUSTER /CLUSTER:cluster-name RES  resource-name /RENAME:new-name

Depending security model, may have to run cmd as Administrator.
