To repair a node without evicting it from the cluster

  1. Open Cluster Administrator.

  2. In the console tree, click the node requiring repair.

  3. On the File menu, click Stop Cluster Service.

  4. If the node must be rebooted after being repaired, set the Cluster service to start manually.

    For more information, see "To set the Cluster service to only start manually" in Related Topics.

  5. Perform repair operations on the node.

  6. On the File menu, click Start Cluster Service to restart the Cluster service on that node.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

  • To open Cluster Administrator, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Cluster Administrator.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
