Message loading NDPSM.NM on server when attempting to migrate NDPS resources to a different server in the cluster.
Error: "The database for the NDPS Manager is not on this file server. The database must be moved to this file server to continue. Press Enter key."
Message also occurs when trying to perform a fail test of a server in the cluster.


Running a Local Database repair with Rebuild Operational Schema selected on all servers in the partition resolved the issue. After the repair the NDPSM loads on servers in the cluster group.
Note: It is possible that the Rebuild Operational Schema is more than is needed to fix this problem. Locking the database on all servers participating in the replica ring and then running a local database rebuild on the server with the problem should be tried first.
