Can't bring Network Name on line

    We had a SAN that crashed, and we now have the servers back up but clustering
    isn't function. When I look at the dependency report, the Network Name is
    offline but its IP address is online and pingable.

    The event viewer shows several of the following:

    ==============
    Event ID: 1205; The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or
    application 'Cluster Group' completely online or offline. One or more
    resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the
    clustered service or application.

    ==================
    Event ID: 1069; Cluster resource 'Cluster Name' in clustered service or
    application 'Cluster Group' failed.

    ==================
    Event ID: 1207; Cluster network name resource 'printserver' cannot be
    brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be
    updated in domain 'choctawnation.com' for the following reason:
    Unable to obtain the Primary Cluster Name Identity token.

    The text for the associated error code is: An attempt has been made to
    operate on an impersonation token by a thread that is not currently
    impersonating a client.


    The cluster identity 'PRINTSERVERCLUS$' may lack permissions required to
    update the object. Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that
    the cluster identity can update computer objects in the domain.

    ==========
    Event ID: 1205; The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or
    application 'Cluster Group' completely online or offline. One or more
    resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the
    clustered service or application.


    I've been googling this for a while, but haven't found a solution. I'd
    appreciate any ideas. Thanks

  3. I had the same issue with my exchange server cluster.

    and we got it fixed...

    This is what I did.

    Checked my DNS server for a record of the cluster name. It was deleted for some reasons. I created a new A record with the same IP and cluster name.

    Shut down both nodes
    Switched on the preferred owner.
    it started working..
    Once all services are working fine and OK I switched on the second node too.
    Now it is fine.

    !!!!!!!

  4. *caveat; abdul's method of manually registering a hostname (A) record in DNS will potentially fix the issue but is not recommended by microsoft

    in case anybody else comes across this article in their research for a solution to why a Windows Cluster can't register clustered-resource names:

    I found the solution http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Fo.../thread/c7ecd6d5-1969-4332-99e1-e68255c94f81/

    long solution, short:
    - right-click the clustered-resource name
    - select more actions...
    - select "repair active directory object"

    other tools that help might be:
    - (from command prompt or powershell) nltest /scquery <FQDN>
    - net helpmsg <decimalvalueof_last-4hexcharacters_ofwinerrorcodes>
    - setspn command might be required to (re-)register service principal name of computer/resource objects
    - dcdiag command from domain controller could indicate active directory service issues (which could cause the registration failure of cluster resource names)
    - nltest /dsregdns (from the domain controller if directory services fails to register itself, according to output of dcdiag)

  5. additionally--if you end up re-registering the DC DNS records for the domain; a netlogon service restart might be in order; just tryin' to help.
