Cluster node will not boot in Windows 2003

Hi all,

I just setup a windows 2003 R2 two node cluster sharing a Network Appliance FAS250 storage device.  I tested the 'move cluster group' option  and the cluster will move between both the nodes successfully. However, now when I restart the windows 2003 nodes one of the nodes will not boot and gets stuck on the black windows 2003 screen with the scroll bar going along continuously.

Any ideas why this would happen?

Thanks,

Dean

Hi,

You could try booting into safe mode and check the event logs or starting using debugging mode via F8 to try to see what is freezing the sstem.

Thanks,

Basically it was a bad drive that the O/S was loaded on. Pulled the bad drive in the mirror and it started up.

Thanks,
