Earn a Free Microsoft Virtualization Certification 74-409.

Dear viewers,

Good news is that Microsoft is now offering free exam vouchers for the new exam “74-409 Server Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center” . The amount of free exams is limited, so be sure to register it as soon as possible.

The number of free exams is limited, so be sure to schedule your appointment to lock-in your free exam. Vouchers expire and all exams must be taken by June 30, 2014. To register for your exam, go to http://www.register.prometric.com and, when prompted, use your voucher code to schedule your exam.

I have scheduled an exam for myself in Prometric for next month for complete free.

Unable to add a cluster node ‘This computer is joined to a cluster.’

Recently, I came into a situation where one of my node on the existing cluster setup got corrupted and had to re-add it to the domain.

I was unable to add the node to the cluster and the error was “This computer ‘Node1’ is joined to a cluster.

There is a simple command to fix the issue.

cluster node <computername> /forcecleanup

Example: cluster node node1.winteladmin.com /forcecleanup

It only takes a few seconds… it cleans out the registry and allows that server to be joined to a new cluster.
