We had an issue with our Active/Passive SQL Cluster 2005 and had to reboot them. The issue was related to our disks on SAN. when both the nodes came online and disks were showing up online on Node 1 we were able to bring the cluster service on and the resources online on Node 1 but the Node 2 failed to restart the service. We thought of evicting the node and try to rejoin it. It would let us do that and give this error message constantly even though the service is not started.
