Exchange 2003 Cluster service account deleted

Hi

We are running Exchange 2003 SP2, Windows 2003 SP2 Enterprise, in an Active/Active/Passive Windows cluster.

Today, we almost had a heart attack because we thought someone had accidentally deleted the cluster service account. Luckily they hadn't :)

But - I was wondering what we should do in case it HAD been deleted? What would have been the effects and what would we need to do to ensure there was no downtime, loss of service etc?

The acct is still in the AD dumpster for (the default of) 30 days. You can follow these steps to retrieve it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840001
