I have 2 node Windows 2008 r2 cluster, i failed over service onto node2, restarted node1, and after restart node1 is unavailable. The networks interfaces will not come up and both interface are unavailable.
On 2 vmware esxi 5 on fiber san, disk are pRDMs. 2 windows 2008 r2 sp1 full patched up to Jan 2012. The cluster has been working for 3 months with multi reboots. I have the exact same cluster setup working just fine.
