Can you describe the setup you were using during the DTCPING test?  Is the error on the source or destination computer?  Are both computers on the same network?  Can you do a regular ping back and forth between the 2 computers?

Clustered MSDTC?  so you have at least 3 servers then, if it's clustered.  What servers are in the cluster?

Are both servers running the same OS? Are both server up-to-date on patches?

You can't (or shouldn't) test a cluster MSDTC service from the passive node in a cluster.  You need to use a 3rd computer/server.

Try running dtcping from a computer that is not a member of the cluster.

you should also be dtcping'ing the cluster resource name or IP that is associated with the MSDTC service in the cluster.

what were the dtcping commands used?  did you dtcping app01 or dtcping app01's IP?
