We have a 2 node Active / Passive cluster.  The cluster appears to work fine.  The cluster name "VIRTUALSQL" has an A record in DNS which we can ping and resolve with a nslookup.

The cluster logs are reporting the following error :

00000c14.00000f40::2008/10/14-15:13:23.637 ERR  Network Name <SQL Network Name(VIRTUALSQL)>: Failed to register DNS A records for owner VIRTUALSQL.abc.com over adapter 'ABCDSQ1_TEAM(1)', status 9017

Could this error cause the SQL Cluster to fail.

Our DNS Servers are Active Directory Integrated and set for Dynamic Updates : Secure Only.

Would this error cause the SQL cluster to fail over ? or cause cluster issues.

it would cause issues where the end clients would not be able to access the virtual server using the DNS name as it may be incorrect.

but as it would be a static IP address the record in DNS would be the same any way even if it dont update it.

Delete the dns record stop and start the network name resource, that should allow the resource to register the DNS record (may need to have DHCP Client started).
The problem is the dns record was created manually and the cluster service account does not have rights to the record.
