    Here is the error I am getting:

    Windows could not start the Cluster Service on Local computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 2.

    The node that’s getting this error is stuck in a draining mode, I can’t evict it or do anything because the cluster service won’t start.

    OS: Windows 2012 R2

    The errors from the event log are:

    • The Cluster Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 4 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.
    • The Cluster Service service terminated with the following service-specific error:
    • The system cannot find the file specified.
    • The Cluster Service service entered the stopped state.
    • The Cluster service cannot be started. An attempt to read configuration data from the Windows registry failed with error ‘2’. Please use the Failover Cluster Management snap-in to ensure that this machine is a member of a cluster. If you intend to add this machine to an existing cluster use the Add Node Wizard. Alternatively, if this machine has been configured as a member of a cluster, it will be necessary to restore the missing configuration data that is necessary for the Cluster Service to identify that it is a member of a cluster. Perform a System State Restore of this machine in order to restore the configuration data.

    Thanks!
