|Issue||How to create / recreate a cluster in EA environment|
You are having problems running lsconfigurationwizard during an EA setup. In specifics, you failed to create cluster during step 8. Or you have experienced issues in your cluster and you need to recreate it.
If you are setting up an EA and failed during lsconfigurationwizard, usually you can narrow down the issues through looking at the cluster_create_xxx logs, cluster_add_xxx logs, cluster_role_create_xxx logs and cluster_dsrole_create_xxx logs to troubleshoot the issue (logs located at e:\nic\<version>\<D-Srv>\logs = %_envision%\logs).
Then you can run specific commands shown below to setup the cluster manually. If you experienced issues in an operative environment and cluster can't run anymore, usually it's an indication of a failure in the NAS. You will need to fix the NAS first, then you can proceed to recreate the cluster
Before running the commands, please do ensure that all of the nodes (DA and CAs) have got an iscsi channels established with the NAS by checking the iscsi initiator -> Targets, ensuring the status is connected.
Then make sure the DA1 actually has access to the Quorum drive, i.e: The drive is accessible through windows explorer and has an proper state in disk management. If not, run iscsi-setup.cmd (from c:\windows\installation) on the DA1.
After ensuring above, you can run following commands to re-create cluster.
Firstly open command prompt and go to %_envision%\bin directory.
Reboot all nodes for it to take effect. Make sure DA1 is completely restarted before moving on to reboot the rest of the nodes.
