SQL Server 2008 Cluster in Failed state

Hi folks,

after doing a SAN disk migration on our Cluster SQL 2008 Servers, we had an issue with the MSDTC service. Sadly and stupidly, I deleted it and recreate it.

Now the MSDTC goes up properly but SQL Server 2008 appears in Failed state when I try to start it on both Cluster server.

I've got as well event ID errors
In System logs:

Event 1069 from FailoverClustering: Cluster resource ‘SQL Server (MOSS)’ in clustered service or application ‘SQL Server (MOSS)’ failed.

Event 1205 from FailoverClustering: The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or application ‘SQL Server (MOSS)’ completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered service or application.

App logs:

All errors had the same EventID, 19019 from Failover

If I try to connect with the SQL Studio, I get the following error :
"Login failed for user sa. Reason : server is in script upgrade mode. Only Administrator can connect at this time."

Quick update: I tried to update the SQL server 2008 R2 to SP1 and it crashed. Now I just fixed the SP installation crash, restarted the server but the problem still there.

I've checked as well the Registry / DefaultData Reg_SZ which was empty and I've added it, tried again but no luck.

Even this didnt worked neither : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2163980

Any clue on how solve this issue? I'm in rush situation.
Help will be a lot appreciate.

Regards,
poy

if it is an important prod server - open MS support Case ASAP

for now try to use the sql server  service startup trace  Add ;-T902
it should suppress the upgrade error

check the sqlo browser  service - it must be online

Hi,

thanks for your comment. Sadly, the T902 didn't resolve anything. I had to play in the registry and reinitiate several values to 1 in order to fix the Update issue. Nevertheless, it didnt resolve anything.
here are the docs and hotfix in case it may be useful to someone

I've opened a case by Microsoft, it costed at lot for nothing as I wait 12 hours for their call which never came.... I've finally mounted in the meantime a DR server and now we will destroy everything and rebuild from scratch.

I still don't understand what happened but I wish good luck it this happens to someone again.
Regards,
David

in any case - it is not a good idea to play with registry on cluster server
specially

the post sp error failure
has nothing to do with Reg and
MSDTS  is not the reason to for sql server resource not to start

Aftert you "fixede" registry
or you must rollback
 or wait for MS
or repair sql install (maybe reinstall)

BTW: All this post and my lost - is your solution
