ClusSvc - 1073


Description »
Cluster service was halted to prevent an inconsistency within the server cluster. The error code was 5892.
Data formatted as » None

The error code in this example is 5892, which is defined in winerror.h as ERROR_CLUSTER_MEMBERSHIP_HALT. net helpmsg 5892 is a little more friendly, telling us "The membership engine requested shutdown of the cluster service on this node".

This error code suggests a "split-brain" scenario - in which the network interfaces on one node lost communication with the other node(s). The cluster is unable to determine if it should be hosting any clustered resources anymore, so it does the decent thing and shuts itself down.

You will need to look at other event log entries and/or the cluster.log file to find the root cause of the problem. For example - event ID 1177 from ClusSvc would tell you that "This could be due to the loss of network connectivity with the current quorum owner".

You may also see an error code of 5028, which is ERROR_QUORUMLOG_OPEN_FAILED - or "The quorum log could not be created or mounted successfully" in plain English. That would point you toward a storage/disk issue - or perhaps a filesystem filter driver preventing the mount from completing successfully. Error code 5027 - quorum resource failed to come online appears in similar circumstances.
