Windows Datacenter 2008 R2 Failover Cluster Manager will not start
We are running a 5 node Windows Datacenter 2008 R2 Failover Cluster that we are using for Hyper-V with a Cluster Storage Volume that will not start because our physical domain controller (another DC is sitting on the CSV that we can't access) and now we get the following error when trying to bring the Cluster Service online within the Failover Cluster Manager.
Node 'BLADE01' failed to establish a communication session while joining the cluster. This was due to an authentication failure. Please verify that the nodes are running compatible versions of the cluster service software.
What are our options. Has anyone used the Force Cluster Service online option successfully and will it work for our scenario.
