    Hi There,

    Our cluster concists of two servers linked to a SAN. The
    power on the SAN failed on caused the cluster to go down.
    We got the first node up again after restoring the Quorom
    drive. But now I have a problem starting the second node.

    Everytime the cluster service returns an error and doesn't
    start. Event ID 1070 with error code 5036, cluster service
    not starting.

    I have checked the connectivity to the system and no
    problems. In the cluster log I also found this
    entry "Failed to join cluster, status 5036". My knowledge
    on this is limited, and I cant find anything on the web
    with specific mention on this.

  2. Hi Jean Claude,

    It's hard to say which of the following issues you have, it's either one of
    the follwoing:

    1. A mix match of Cluster Checkpoint TMP files.
    2. A corrupted Cluster Checkpoint TMP files.
    3. Corrupted Clusdb.

    First, try starting the Cluster service on the node generating the event
    using "-resetquorumlog" switch (without double quotes). See the following
    reference article:

    245762 Recovering from a Lost or Corrupted Quorum Log

    If first didn't work then try this second, from the working Cluster node use
    the Cluster Recovery tool from the Resource Kit to replace the Cluster
    Checkpoint TMP files or sycn them up to the Quorum disk. See the following
    reference article:

    307469 Restore registry check points stop working after you restore a server

    Third and lastly if the other two steps don't work, would be to follow the
    steps outlined in the article below to recover from a corrupted Clusdb.

    How to Use the Cluster TMP file to Replace a Damaged Clusdb File

    Hope this helps,
