Anything in your application logs?  I've seen problems come from number of Cluster Resources cause issues but it usually shows up in the app logs

Hi Jesse - It's a file cluster actually.

5042 is "Cluster Node not found"; seems like there is (at least) one resource in the groups that won't move for which this node isn't a "possible owner", or the node may be paused.

Open you cluster.log file in notepad or another text editor. Go to the bottom of the log, then select CTL +F and find "Cluster Service Started". That will show us what's happened to the cluster since the last time the cluster service started. If you can post that it will give us considerably more information to troubleshoot the issue, i.e. what resources are in the cluster group, etc. My experience is that usually the quorum or some other resource is hanging up.
