    I was doing some testing on the impact of the cluster account and removed it from an instance. Now the instance is offline and I cannot get it back up to add the account back. Is there a way I can bring the instance up in order to add the account?

    Thanks

    IS BuiltinAdministrator account dropped from SQL Server?
    Are you able to startup the SQL Server services?
