When you restore the Cluster service in Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003, the registry check pointing feature stops functioning.
This behavior will occur if you used the -resetquorumlog parameter.
Your System event log contains:
Event ID: 1024
Description: The registry checkpoint for cluster resource %ResourceName% could not be restored to registry key HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\%ServiceName%. The resource may not function correctly. Make sure no other processes have open handles to subkeys in the registry subtree.
Event ID: 1082
Description: The Microsoft Clustering Service failed restore a registry key for resource %ResourceName% when it was brought online. This error code was <NTSTATUS>. Some changes may be lost.
To fix this behavior, reset the server cluster check points by using the Windows Server 2003 ClusterRecovery.exe utility.
NOTE: The ClusterRecovery tool also works in Windows 2000 clusters.
NOTE: See the ClusterRecovery.chm help file.
