    Yesterday I got a problem with a 2 node cluster with yukon beta 2 up an running well.

    There was a loss of electrical power and node 1 which was up and running was somehow affected.

    There was no way to get SQL up in this node.
    So I've switched to node 2 and it is running ok there.

    What I want to do is somehow force reinstalling all the SQL files over the existing cluster installation so to get node 1 installation fixed.

    I can't seem to be able to do that, I've tried from setup.exe alone and from add/remove programs.

    How can I force reinstallation of the whole thing?
    Some parameter setup maybe?

    Thanks.

    I haven't seen such switch or option to do so, only way is to uninstall and reinstall.
