    Hi I have a compaq CL 380 cluster server with windows 2000 ad srvr installed.
    We are using MS SQL 2000 on this cluster. Yesterday we updated one node with
    the latest security patches and restarted. But after restart, the cluster
    service do no start. I get a error in the event log,..
    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: ClusSvc
    Event Category: (256)
    Event ID: 1000
    Date: 27.10.2005
    Time: 14:51:21
    User: N/A
    Computer: SCASV02
    Description:
    Microsoft Clustering Service suffered an unexpected fatal error at line 597
    of source module D:\nt\private\cluster\service\dm\dmsync.c. The error code
    was 5.

    Any Idea?

  2. Tell us if the system drive is NTFS or FAT, or FAT32

    The system partition is NTFS(C: drive). However its a Compaq server set up
    with compaq smart start CD. So compaq creates a small (40mb) partition with
    fat32 to store the compaq system files. The quorum partion I have to check.

  5. OK, NTFS is where you should be. So, are you still getting the same error?

    Hi, Should I remove the latest security patches? I never had problems with
    security patches. Could this be the reason?

  9. Well, if the last thing you did was apply security patches and then your
    cluster broke, it certainly sounds reasonable to try removing security
    patches and see if the problem remains.

    Security patches are like any other update...you should test thoroughly
    before implementing into your production environment.

    Regards,
    John

    It works. I had to romove many updates. So I could not figure out which was
    the particular one which caused the problem.

    Thanks a lot.
