You need to restart the node and then readd the service.

Not sure why you would make task scheduler part of the cluster, a better approach is have task scheduler running, but the script include a check to determine if it is the active node before continuing.

Another approach is to have the running of the task triggered remotely.

I.e. you have servera monitoring/task master that connects to the clusterip and runs the task.
schtasks /s clusterinstanceid /run /tn "process job"

hi arnold
 
 restarted the node .but i am  getting the same error not able to start the task scheduler service in passive node
and one think i want to inform you i manually failover the cluster to another node in that node task scheduler is working fine

and i found that dependency services for task scheduler are cluster service and RPC services

but in another node where the task scheduler is not starting found only RPC services as dependency

please advice me on this

You can edit the registry HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\servicename
http://www.itq.nl/blogs/post/Removing-dependencies-from-a-Windows-service.aspx

Alternatively, use cluster admin on the passive node and connect to the local cluster (.)
Then see whether you can separate the service from being part of the cluster configuration.

This may have been an error during configuration where this resource was tied to the cluster, but then the cluster was deleted and a new one setup. Or it is still defined but inoperative.

Was access using cluadmin (.) ?
Did you using regedit remove the dependency reference to the cluster?
