Remove Cluster server
 
Hello

I have a windows 2003 server, that was never put into a cluster, but for
some reason now thinks it's clustered... I have tried to do a force cleanup
and it says it completed successfully, I have also removed the load balance
service and also followed tech note 268437, and removed the wlbs keys, but it
still thinks it's clustered

Any suggestions...

Thanks

Hi Jordy,

On a default install of 2003, when cluster server has never been installed,
the following values are set under the Cluster Server key listed above:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Cluster
Server]

"ClusterInstallationState"=dword:00000001
"ClusterInstallationDirectory"="C:\\WINNT\\Cluster"

Here are the current known values for Cluster Installation State:

0 = ClusterInstallStateUnknown - Cluster Service configuration unknown
1 = ClusterInstallStateFilesCopied - Files Copied but Cluster Service not
configured
2 = ClusterInstallStateConfigured - Cluster Service configured, fresh
install
3 = ClusterInstallStateUpgraded - Cluster Service configured, upgrade

--------------------
Hope this helps,

Jordy,

If this keys are not there, create them. Because they should be there.
Especially the "ClusterInstallationState" and the
"ClusterInstallationDirectory" ones.
