Does anybody know of any reason why we shouldn't enable Network DTC Access on our SQL 2008 cluster?  One of our vendors, Connecsys, has a web app that requires it.  It's been run from a separate DB up to now, but we're trying to consolidate all DBs to the cluster and came across this issue.  I just want to be sure we're not opening up a can of worms here.

When you do not enable network DTC access on the server, applications can only use transactions that stay on the local computer. For example, transactions cannot flow from a local computer to a database that runs on a separate computer if network DTC access is disabled.
