Machines that are ghosted or cloned from the same image may share identifiers that could prevent successful MSDTC communication.



We recommend that all ghosted and cloned machines are set to the "Out-of-Box Experience" using the Windows syprep tool.

  1. Run "%WINDIR%\System32\Sysprep\sysprep.exe" as Administrator
  2. Under System Cleanup Action, select Enter System Out-of-Box Experience (OOBE), and select to reboot the machine
  3. Follow the prompts to set up your machine
