Failed Exchange 2000 Cluster
Posted on 2008-01-27
I have a clustered Exchange 2000 environment running on 2 x Windows 2000 Advanced Servers.
2 x Dell PE1650
1 x Dell PV220S - 2 x 36Gb RAID 1 for logs and 3 x 72Gb RAID 5 for databases and Quorum.
Anyway during a recent move to another site I managed to connect the 220S external scsi cables around the wrong way. As a result i have lost the RAID configuration.
I have recreated the lost volumes.
D: 36Gb for logs
E: 140Gb for E2K databases
Q: 1Gb for Quorum
I have backed up the Exchange databases using BackupExec v11D but dont have a system backup or Quorum backup. I can still boot the PE1650's but the cluster service wont start.
I un-installed the cluster service on both of the nodes and re-installed but I get an error something like cant create new cluster or join existing.
Not sure where to go from here?
