Hi all,

I have merge replication running between two sql servers (each of which is on a cluster).

I have the following error message on the publisher side:

The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) service could not be contacted. If you would like distributed transaction functionality, please start this service.

Can this have an impact on replication?

Yes. MSDTC is required for Merge Replication.
