Q. The Microsoft Cluster Service is removed from the cluster node when you try to join a cluster node to a Windows Server 2003 cluster?

When you attempt to join a cluster node to a Windows Server 2003 cluster and it fails to join, the MSCS (MicroSoft Cluster Service) is removed from the cluster node. On the cluster node, you receive an error like:

Error 5893: ERROR_CLUSTER_INSTANCE_ID_MISMATCH: The join operation failed because the cluster instance ID of the joining node does not match the cluster instance ID of the sponsor node.

If you view the %SystemRoot%\Cluster\Cluster.log file, you see entries like:

MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS WARN \[JOIN\] Attempting join with sponsor 192.168.222.23.
MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS INFO \[NMJOIN\] Beginning cluster join process.

This expected behavior occurs because the cluster instance ID of the cluster node that joins the cluster does not match the cluster instance ID of the sponsor node. The ClusterInstanceID at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Cluster on the sponsor node and on the local cluster instance must match.
