I had looked at the remote registery service is started and netbios checkbox issue previously, I rechecked again and both seem to be enabled.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I had the same problem. I ended up changing the network binding order on the node (Network Connections | Advanced | Advanced Settings). Make your LAN first and your HEARTBEAT second. This resolved the issue. I was able to stop the system attendand (SA) resource and was then able to remove the virtual server.
