Reinstall an Exchange Server 2007 cluster continuous replication node

Learn the proper steps to take when reinstalling an Exchange Server 2007 cluster continuous replication (CCR) node.

I'm currently running cluster continuous replication (CCR) on Exchange Server 2007, and both server nodes have independently attached storage area networks (SANs). When I reinstall node two, should I add the database volume (SAN volume) to the Windows cluster as a physical resource?
I would highly recommend against that. Here is a good CCR deployment checklist to follow in situations like yours.

If you need assistance with creating a failover cluster, these detailed instructions on forming a CCR cluster for an Exchange 2007 clustered mailbox server will also be useful.
