If a node of the cluster is reinstalled for any reason and then rejoins the cluster, a Symmetric Virtual Server (SVS) can not fail over to that node.
When the SVS is installed by using the SQL Cluster Wizard, several support files are copied to both nodes of the cluster. Without these files, the SVS can not run.
To work around this problem, uninstall the SVS by running the SQL Cluster Wizard, choosing Remove, and then running the SQL Cluster Wizard again to reinstall the SVS.
If the node that was reinstalled was the node that SQL Server Setup was originally run on, uninstall SVS. For additional information about how to uninstall SVS from a node that SQL Server was not installed on, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
