    If you are installing cluster having SQL Server version 2008 and above installing msdtc is not a must do thing. Please read this blog to know when you would need an msdtc

  • MSDTC allow for a transaction to be distributed over several database servers. Whether you need it or not, you have to ask the one who delivered your applications. "Do your app use MSDTC?"
