Finished installing Windows 2003 64bit Enterprise SP2, cluster and I am following the standard tests for cluster failures.    I was able to successfully do the Moving Groups test via Cluster Admin from the active node to the passive and back again.   No errors in the event log on either node.   The initiate failure test was also successfull by failing a resource in the cluster group.   No errors in the event log on either server.    The problem happens when I power down the node one (node one happens to be active).    Everthing fails over to the other node find, but when node one is powered up I get an error at the login screen that one or more services failed to start.    If I filp the test and make node 2 active and power it down I don't get any service failed messages and the event log is clean.    The event error from node one are posted below.    The first error is from the application log the second is in the system log.   Node one was the node that the cluster was built on and the same one SQL2005 was installed from.
