Microsoft Clustering Service fails to start after a reboot

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.
Thanks

Hi toma,

There is a common problem where the NIC teaming is initializing before the cluster service starts causing similar errors as you are experiencing. In this case disabling Internet Connection Sharing sometimes fixes the problem. Check out this link for more info.

This may not help you as your problem seems a little different, but it's worth a shot.

TK-77 thanks even tho I had the Firewall Disabled the service was still running. Once I disabled the Widnows Firewall/ Internet Connection Shareing service this problem went away.
