Microsoft Clustering Service fails to start after a reboot
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have a Microsoft file server cluster and if I reboot the active node of the cluster the cluster the node fails over to the other node correctly. However the service fails to start on the passive node after reboot. In the system event log I am seeing 5 of following entries
Event ID 1209 Cluster service is requesting a bus reset for device \Device\ClusDisk0.
Then I see the following entry
Event ID 1009 Cluster service could not join an existing server cluster and could not form a new server cluster. Cluster service has terminated.
I can then use the cluster administrator to start the cluster service and the service starts ok and rejoins the cluster. This will also happen if I reboot the passive node.
Any help in tracking this problem down would be great.
