Good Day

I did failover yesterday for our SQL 2005 server cluster hosted on 2008 64-bit and I got the below error:
Cluster network name resource 'SQL Network Name (RUH-003-SQL-01)' cannot be brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be updated in domain '' for the following reason:
Unable to find computer account on DC where it was created.

The text for the associated error code is: There is no such object on the server.

The cluster identity 'RUH-003-CL-001$' may lack permissions required to update the object. Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that the cluster identity can update computer objects in the domain."

I opened a case with Microsoft and they resotred the object but stiil the same event is coming
Our Production SQL is down now. pleaaaaaaaase help

    This is how Microsoft solved:

    1)      Run ldp from run or go to tools folder: C:\Program Files\SupportTools
    2)      Connection à Connect à DNS Host Name à Bind à username & password & domain
    3)      View à Tree
    4)      Options à Controls à Object Identifier = 1.2.840.113556.1.4.417 à Check In à OK
    5)      Double click DC=prod,DC=bb,DC=lan 2 times
    6)      Double click CN=Deleted Objects,DC=prod,DC=bb,DC=lan
    7)      Ctrl +N
    8)      Double click the deleted object à right click à modify
    9)      Insert isDeleted to the attribute filed à chose delete choice à click enter
    10)       Insert distinguishedName to the attribute filed à
    11)       On the ritght pain look for lastKnownParent:  and copy the text after is. E.g: OU=All Users,DC=prod,DC=bb,DC=lan
    12)       On Modify Box Valu add DN name. e.g CN=Abdalla O. Omer + , + what you copied from step 10. so you will set: CN=Abdalla O. Omer,OU=All Users,DC=prod,DC=bb,DC=lan
    13)       chose Replace choice à click enter
