Remove a node from exchange 2010 DAG and add it back, repercussions
Posted on 2014-02-06
I have failover cluster errors on one of my two node DAG. Error is failover clustering event id 1207.
Cluster with name "ClusterName" could not be brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be updated in domain "domain.local" for the following reason: unable to update password for computer account.
The text for the associated error code is: RPC server unavailable
The cluster identity may lack permissions required to update the object.
"Cluster network name resource '%1' cannot be brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be updated in domain '%2' for the following reason: %3.
The text for the associated error code is: %4
The cluster identity '%5' may lack permissions required to update the object. Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that the cluster identity can update computer objects in the domain."
Also received a critical error 2 days stating node 2 had been removed from the cluster.
This just started 3 days ago and had been functioning since June 2013 without issue.
EMC shows the DAG as functional and the cluster manager shows both nodes up. Database replication entries in event viewer on both nodes show successful replication and healthy database states.
However, I'm still getting the 1207 error on node 2 and have done a lot of research but can't figure out where to go from here.
So, can I remove and re-add the node without royally screwing up the DAG, or worse the exchange servers?
