Description
Could not start the MS DTC Transaction Manager.
Comments
 
This problem can occur when the MSDTC service writes to the cluster registry. See ME900216 for information about this event.

See "JSI Tip 4593" for additional information about this event.
ME205069 helped me to fix this problem.
From a newsgroup post: "I tried re-installing Service Pack 4. That didn't fix it. I was trying to start the MSDTC service from the services applet in control panel and it would continually failed. With more investigation I ended up in SQL Enterprise Manager looking at the configuration properties in MSDTC. I noticed a button that said 'RESET LOG’. I remembered that one of the errors in the event  viewer was that the log file could not be found. I than pushed that button and started the service and everything works well now".

This error may be a result of a missing or damaged MS DTC (Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator). Make sure that all Resource Manager that are coordinated by MS DTC have no "in-doubt" transactions. To fix the problem:
1. Use Windows Explorer to expand the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dtclog folder.
2. If a Msdtc.log file exists, rename it to Msdtc.old.
3. Opens NOTEPAD and save an empty file as %SystemRoot%\System32\Dtclog\Msdtc.log.
4. Open a CMD prompt and type: msdtc -resetlog and press Enter.
