Cluster service hangs on starting, 2nd attempts succeeds
Windows 2003 R2 SP2 x64 on a DL580 G5 using SFW 5.1 with cluster extension. MSCS is installed using the SFW manual. EVA connected through HP Branded Brocade's.
SFW Cluster validation passed with no errors
MSCS Cluster validation passed with no errors
Whenever I use LDM to create a Quorum, the cluster boots and fails over with no problem.
I created a dynamic quorum using the manual. The cluster service hangs on starting, it succeeds when booting manually or through the recover tab in the services console.
As I test I then created a simple quorum, no difference. When I create a quorum through LDM it works.
This is the relevant excerpt of my cluster.log
