I am getting the following error when I am trying to failover an instance to another node:

The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the group, or the node is not a possible owner of the group.

I remember vaguely that add node was already done on this node and failover testing was made. Any idea why am getting such error?

My server is SQL 2008 R2 SP2

I also ran the following command and it showed up the node which isnt taking the instance's name also in the result set:
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_os_cluster_nodes

I also verified that add node was already done earlier.
I just ran the SQL Server setup again and there wasn't any instance pending when I ran the add node option.

Is the node that you are trying to failover to listed as a possible owner for the cluster resources in cluster admin?

Run the following Powershell command to list the resource possible owners. Replace the string with the name of your clustered role

get-clusterresource | ?{$_.OwnerGroup -EQ "yourclustergroup"} | get-clusterownernode | fl

If you run the command directly on the cluster node just open the Powershell command window and paste the command in. You may need to import the failover cluster module, use the following to do this

import-module failoverclusters
