Hi,

We've deleted a cluster group by mistake, and moved the physical disk reosurce that belonged to the delete cluster group to another cluster group.

Is there any possibility to recover a cluster group in w2k3.

Thank you.

Hi,

I missed to say that I can't use cluster recovery utility as we have a Windows 2003 x64 platform.

Do you have a backup of the clusdb file off the c: drive prior to the issue?

See MS article:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224999

Hi,

I already had a look on this article and I could see a very strange situation. We have a lot of tmp files from many months ago and just another one from the same day when the cluster group was deleted. So, If I use the newest tmp file I won't be able to restore the deleted group and if I use the older one I'll lose other changes made on the cluster configuration.

Does anybody why I have so many files from a long time ago and just one file from the time the cluster group was deleted?.

Thank you.

Hi 65td,

Thank you, but the cluster group has been recreated manually and we've configured System State Backup by using our Backup software.

What I only want to know is an answer to my question from 22/12/09 08:15 AM.

Regards.

I haven't had a solution for my question why the server had so many old tmp files and I can't restore the cluster to the desired state, that one when the cluster had the good configuration before the disaster.
