Prepare to restore SQL,
Exchange, Oracle, and Lotus Domino databases in a cluster after a
disaster by reading the sections on preparing for disaster recovery
in the appropriate chapters.
In addition to the
initial preparation instructions, further action is required to
completely protect the Microsoft cluster servers.

required to successfully recover the cluster:
General Cluster Information
Cluster IP address and subnet mask
Cluster node names
Node IP addresses

If you are recovering a Microsoft Cluster Server,
run Dumpcfg.exe from the Microsoft 2000 Resource Kit or and the
Clusterrecovery.exe from the Microsoft 2003 Resource Kit to
retrieve the disk signatures from the shared disk. The Microsoft
2000 Resource Kit allows you to replace disk signatures.
If you are recovering a Veritas Cluster Server, run
Vmgetdrive.exe to retrieve the disk signatures, disk group, and
volume information from the shared disk.
