For Demo and learning Sites you need often thing that takes only a minute but when you play with it it takes more time than you want.
So with this in my mind I created 3 powershell scripts that you can use for builing a cluster , NLB Cluster and a MSTDC cluster resource.
So If you want to create a MSDTC resource in your Cluster you can do this in the GUI or with a Powershell Script.
You can find the Scripts Here : Powershell Scripts
First We load the powershell modules If it is a cluster you should do this on all the Cluster Nodes
Servermanagercmd -install Application-Server
Servermanagercmd -install AS-Dist-Transaction AS-Ent-Services –allSubFeatures
I Comment every line for what it does.
# Create a new HA Server Role – Distributed Transaction Coordinator
Add-ClusterServerRole -Name ServerDTC -Storage "Cluster Disk 6" -StaticAddress 192.168.1.1
Here we create the resource and chuck it to a disk and IP
# Add the MSDTC Service to the new Server Role
Get-ClusterGroup ServerDTC | Add-ClusterResource -Name MSDTC-ServerDTC -ResourceType "Distributed Transaction Coordinator"
Put in the MSDTC services.
# Create Dependencies for the DTC group
Add-ClusterResourceDependency MSDTC-ServerDTC ServerDTC
Add-ClusterResourceDependency MSDTC-ServerDTC "Cluster Disk 6"
# Start DTC group
So Now that this is ready you can configure the MSDTC but remember the items that I mentioned in my previous blog.
