SYMPTOMS
If a node of the cluster is reinstalled for any reason and then rejoins thecluster, a Symmetric Virtual Server (SVS) can not fail over to that node.
CAUSE
When the SVS is installed by using the SQL Cluster Wizard, several supportfiles are copied to both nodes of the cluster. Without these files, the SVScan not run.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, uninstall the SVS by running the SQL ClusterWizard, choosing Remove, and then running the SQL Cluster Wizard again toreinstall the SVS.

If the node that was reinstalled was the node that SQL Server Setup wasoriginally run on, uninstall SVS. For additional information about how touninstall SVS from a node that SQL Server was not installed on, please seethe following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
