Microsoft has posted a hotfix for a scenario where a cluster node crashes when you restart a computer in a Windows Server 2008 R2 environment.
- You deploy a failover cluster in a Windows Server 2008 R2 environment.
- You enable the Volume Shadow Copy Service on a cluster disk.
- You replace a host bus adapter (HBA) on a cluster node.
- You restart the cluster node.
In this scenario, the cluster node crashes. This issue is triggered by a deadlock that occurs when the computer restarts.
A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft.
