Error description

  • Problem that we have seen is that the windows cluster resource
    group appears to be very unstable and can cause the cluster
    administrator to fail and no longer work. As a result the entire
    ms cluster\s fail.
    
    All that is needed is to create a new resource using the 'DB2
    Server' resource type in an already predefined cluster group.
    The name of the resource needs to be an invalid instance name.
    Upon pressing next you will be notified that the instance does
    not exist. If you press ok to abort, it appears to create the
    definition and expects the instance to exist. Since the instance
    does not exist, it crashes the ms cluster and any restart fails.
    The only method I've found so far to resolve this is to create
    the instance that was in error and allow the ms cluster to
    restart. Once started you can then delete the offending
    resources.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround: Create the an instance for the problem resource and
    can then look to drop resource & then instance.
