The operation has failed using Member Server

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I got stuck in a problem when trying to build a failover cluster using 2008 member servers, that are fully tested and updated but it gave the following error message which is difficult to solve for me. I have joined the nodes from the domains and unchecked the security restrictions but the same error exists. How can I resolve this annoying problem? Any idea would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

In order to resolve this problem do the following

  1. Check the network configuration and ensure there is not mistake in your public network and interfaces on the failover cluster nodes.
  2. Temporarily disable the firewall on both failover cluster nodes and  the domain controller.
  3. Specify a default gateway based on your subnet
  4. Double check the network binding order
  5. Remove the failover cluster nodes out of the domain
  6. Use window server domain controller.
