I am setting up a test Windows Server 2012 R2 VM with SQL Server 2008 R2 cluster. Setting up Windows Server 2008 R2 clusters always succeeds, but for some odd reason, I cannot figure out why my roles in the 2012 Cluster are failing. Here are some of the errors I get when attempting to put the roles online (this example is of the DTC role):
1) Clustered role '2012DTC12' has exceeded its failover threshold. It has exhausted the configured number of failover attempts within the failover period of time allotted to it and will be left in a failed state. No additional attempts will be made to bring the role online or fail it over to another node in the cluster. Please check the events associated with the failure. After the issues causing the failure are resolved the role can be brought online manually or the cluster may attempt to bring it online again after the restart delay period.
2) The Cluster service failed to bring clustered role '2012DTC12' completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered role.
3) Cluster resource '2012DTC12' of type 'Network Name' in clustered role '2012DTC12' failed.
Based on the failure policies for the resource and role, the cluster service may try to bring the resource online on this node or move the group to another node of the cluster and then restart it. Check the resource and group state using Failover Cluster Manager or the Get-ClusterResource Windows PowerShell cmdlet.
4) Cluster network name resource '2012DTC12' failed to create its associated computer object in domain 'XXX.local' during: Resource online.
The text for the associated error code is: A constraint violation occurred.
Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that:
- The cluster identity '2012CLUSTER$' has Create Computer Objects permissions. By default all computer objects are created in the same container as the cluster identity '2012CLUSTER$'.
- The quota for computer objects has not been reached.
- If there is an existing computer object, verify the Cluster Identity '2012CLUSTER$' has 'Full Control' permission to that computer object using the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.
If someone can please help, I'd greatly appreciate it!
