Cluster Server (HA)- Hardware Error / Planned to replace the node 1 server


Hi All,

In our environment we are having cluster environment for the production system and the landscape details are below

OS : windows 2003

Database : SQL 2005

SAP : ECC6.0

High availability was configured and it was running for the past 4 years. Yesterday we had a hardware problem in our node 1 and it got shutdown automatically(Also it switched to node 2 and its working fine without any issues). We tried to bring back the servers, unfortunately hardware specialist said thats its not possible to recover the system. So,we are forced to go for this option

We have a server in place and hence we planned to use this as Node1 in future.

So my Question is that.

Is that possible to include this as Node 1 in the current landscape in the fly(By Installing cluster DB and SAP again) or do i need to come from the scratch for the High Availability installation as like the fresh one?

It would be great if you suggest me with your inputs
