The cluster seems to have a I/O error and can't recover from it.
A reboot is necessary.
Does anybody know the problem?
An I/O operation initiated by the Registry failed unrecoverably.The Registry could not flush hive (file): '\??\Volume{eb34ba26-c2d4-11dd-801d-00215e20458c}\Cluster\0.hive'.

    The cluster became unstable bacause he lost the heartbeat.
    I augmented the missed heartbeats to max (10) and the range for heartbeat frequency to max (2000)

    Accepted Solution

    IP6 was still available on the Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adaptor even though is was removed from the private and public adaptors on both my cluster nodes.
    When the Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adaptor started a browser election on the second node, the cluster started a split brain.
    1. I disable the browser service on both nodes (you really don't need this if you have some other browser servers in the network)(standard it's not started on win2008),
    2. I deleted the second node with EMC Cluster enable
    3. I completely deleted the node for windows : cluster node "clusternodename" /Forcecleanup
    4. recreated the node
    Suplemenatry things I did:
    1. Upgraded EMC solutions Enabler to version 7.0.1
    2. Upgraded EMC SRDF/CE to version
    3. Installed service pack 2 of Windows 2008

    So far no problems anymore
