I have a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 server running Cluster Shared Volumes. We had a connection failure. The failure has been resolved but after rebooting the server the node still shows down.
Can I evict the node and add the node back in without causing any trouble to the node that is up and running with my current vm's?

If ALL the resources are owned by the working node, you should be able to evict the non-working node with no issues.

Yes, if successfully, evicted, and if the node passes the Cluster Verfiication Utility, you can adsd back in.
