I am trying to install a 2 active 1 passive node cluster with a NetApp SAN. All of the discs have been created and I can create Exchange virtual server 1. When I try to create Exchange Virtual server 2 I get the following "the total number of exchange virtual servers on this cluster has exceeded the allowable limit for active/passive to operate".
It has the event ID c103fc97
I have tried limiting things to one virtual server and everything else I can think of. So has anybody else seen this and if so what is the fix please?

NO our configuration is different...

3 Nodes;
1 Active Virtual Server
2 Passive

We get the error message when we try and add a 2nd Virtual Server to a 3 node cluster - Exchange rules are OK.

Are you exceediing the physical limitation of four storage groups? Since Exchange does not allow this limit to be exceeded, you must guarantee that the sum total of all Exchange virtual servers does not exceed what could be run on a single Exchange server.

The solution was indeed that we had too many virtual servers for the number of nodes available. However somehow a virtual server had been created in the Cluster Group using the cluster resources (Quorum) which is why no one noticed it.
