Hi All,

Environment: Windows 2000 Domain Controllers
Hardware: HP DL580 G5
Cluster OS: Windows 2008 R2 Core, with Hyper-V
Cluster Servers are SAN Attached to Hitachi, QLogic HBA

All cluster validations shows green...

I am trying to install a 2 node cluster on a Windows 2008 Core R2 Server (Hyper-V), and getting the following error:

Cluster:  cluster1
Node:  server1
Node:  server2
IP Address: 192.168.0.3
Started 8/16/2010 10:09:20 AM
Completed 8/16/2010 10:09:22 AM
 
Beginning to configure the cluster cluster1.
Initializing Cluster cluster1.
Validating cluster state on node server1.
Searching the domain for computer object 'cluster1'.
Creating a new computer object for 'cluster1' in the domain.
Configuring computer object 'cluster1' as cluster name object.
Validating installation of the Network FT Driver on node server1.
Unable to successfully cleanup.
To troubleshoot cluster creation problems, run the Validate a Configuration wizard on the servers you want to cluster.
An error occurred while creating the cluster.
An error occurred creating cluster 'cluster1'.
The service has not been started

Stuck with the above error, urgently need some help and response in order to continue with the deployment.

Thanks in advance

-Steve

Problem solved, the issue has to do with Windows 2000 AD, W2K8 R2 cluster was not happy with W2K AD. Microsoft gave us a patch... All working OK!
