Clustering: Unable to failover to another node.

Decarn asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

I have a Exchange serer on Windows 2003 and I'm not able to failover to another node.

The Event ID is: 1034.

The disk associated with cluster disk resource 'Disk Q:' could not be found. The expected signature of the disk was "". If the disk was removed from the server cluster, the resource should be deleted. If the disk was replaced, the resource must be deleted and created again in order to bring the disk online. If the disk has not been removed or replaced, it may be inaccessible at this time because it is reserved by another server cluster node.

It is not only Disk Q but all other data disks as well. Also, it's strange that there is no disk signature in the log.

In addition to finding the solution, I'm trying to replicate the problem using VMWare workstation. I have successfully set up clustering between two nodes and need advice on the next step.
