Cluster nodes hangs on startup and displays: Preparing to configure Windows. Do not turn off your computer!

Level 3

Hi everybody,

Right now I'm facing a problem with the members nodes of a cluster, basically I running a two clusters systems with a single node on each one, generally speaking this is a single-node cluster configuration. I am using Veritas Storage Foundation HA 6.0 being installed on Widows 2008 R2 Server Standard Edition, the problem is like follow: After I restarted both servers as the final step of the configuration, the servers reboots and the following message is displayed when windows tries to load the configuration: "Preparing to configure Windows. Do not turn off your computer." after few minutes the server restart again, and this process continue so and on... it means they are in a endless loop. Could anyone give me some hints or clues what could be happening?

Thank you for your support!

We normally see that message when Windows Updates are being installed.

Probably best to ask your Windows admin/support team for assistance at this point.
