Newby here to Experts Exchange - Just signed up. I am really hoping you guys can help me. Let me expain the issue quickly.
I have a HP DL380 G4 Packaged Cluster solution acting as a Active/Active File & Print Cluster. It runs WIN2K3 Enterprise R2, SP2 Edition. Just recently, out of the blue, the 1st node will not accept any failover resources. It hangs on any disk being failed over. The only error I get is the below.
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: PlugPlayManager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 256
Computer: xxxxxxxxxxx (removed for privacy)
Timed out sending notification of device interface change to window of "ClusterDiskPnPWatcher"
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp
The node basically hangs after this and the resources fail. After Googling, Yahooing, MSNing and CUILing I get a bunch of useless information. Does anyone have any ideas how to troubleshoot this. Below are the steps I have already performed.
Evicted Bad node from cluster, manually "cleandup Node". Rejoined Node. NO CHANGE
Disabled MSDTC (This is setup as a cluster resource) NO CHANGE
Disabled Mcafee (in case it was holding onto a open file on disks). NO CHANGE
Created a seperate hardware profile on bad node. NO CHANGE
I would really appreciate any assistance in this.
