Dear Sirs,

I have a microsoft cluster with two nodes with Windows 2000 Advanced
Server.

After a controlled shutdown and next startup, first node on cluster
could not start Cluster Service.

However, second node on cluster,
is able to boot, and take ownership of all cluster resources.

But we can't move resource group (file sharing) to first node and
control is returned to second node.

I can see in the event viewer:

Event messages

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ClusSvc
Event Category: (128)
Event ID: 1009
Date: 18/05/2005
Time: 7:38:57
User: N/A
Computer: BILBO
Description:
The Clustering Service could not join an existing cluster and could not
form a new cluster. The Clustering Service has terminated.
Data:
0000: de 13 00 00 Þ...

As we read in internet, data word of event, indicates next:

Interpret 000013DE in decimal= 5086
and now execute: net helpmsg 5086 and it appears:

The quorum disk could not be located by the cluster service

More information is next: I can move the "Print sharing" resource
group to first node.

What happened to cluster?
What can I do?
If I evict the first node from cluster and resinstall cluster software,
will loose the configuration (resources, shares, printers,...)?


Some clues I have:

Perhaps is a problem on size of quorum log
Perhaps is a problem on disk signatures (via dumpcfg) and cluster
disk signatures. Find out about "cluster disk device".
Perhaps, I must uninstall (evict) the first node and reinstall
cluster software?



Many,many thanks in advanced,

Check hardware...maybe your HBA is dying and will not let your access the
cluster disks. You could disable the cluster disk driver and see if the host
can still access the disks and filesystem. It might be that the drive
letters or disk signatures have changed for this host.

If you evict the node and re-install, you will not lose resources, though
you may need to re-install applications. This is specific to the individual
applications so you'd need to review each application and see what is needed
to recover. A file share would not need any additional re-configuration.

Regards,
John

Incorrect node can take ownership of other cluster groups. So I think there
isn't hardware problem. Also, windows server find luns on boot time.

I've checked disks signatures comparing dmdiag output with registry
entries,and it seems identical.

I'll try disabling cluster disk driver, or finally I will reinstall
cluster services.

Many thanks again for your time.
