Hi ,
Not sure if you need more details to help me on this. I am trying to get help from MS but is of no use.
steps i did:
installed windows 2003 ent sp1
installed all the drivers
created the cluster (it works fine, both nodes)
promoted windows 2003 to native mode
ran forestprep
tried installing exchange 2003--it asked me for MSDTC resource..
then tried creating MSDTC resource.no luck
Installed the below mentioned patch and tried creating MSDTC resource ..again no luck.
Now i am stuck..Can any one help me on this... is the order of insallation wrong??
