Failure starting MS Cluster Service

    Question

  • W2K3 2-node cluster running SQL 2008. When attempting to start the Cluster service on the primary node it returns the following error:

    Could not start the cluster server on the local computer.
    Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.

    When viewing the logs I see the following:

    An error occurred attempting to open cluster node 'node name'
    Not enough resources are available to complete this operation.
    Error ID: 1721 (000006b9)

    I've applied the fixed listed in this KB article by adding 1024 - 65535 for the ports:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826154

    Once applied I was able to start the cluster service and launch the cluster administrator on that node. A few weeks have gone by and I just starting experiencing this same issue on the same node. The second node is fine so at this point I'm considering evicting the node and adding it back to see if it'll resolve this issue. Before doing so I figured I'd reach out to see if anyone may be familiar with this particular issue.

    Any responses appreciated.
