Windows 2008 r2 cluster

This should be so easy but when try to validate a configuration and add a server an error tells me that the wizard is unable to determine if I have administrator access and that I should check if the server- and remote registry services are running. The are and the firewall has been completely disabled on all profiles.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I could swear that the server service was running. But due to my own mistake when I wanted to make the server service dependent on the MSiSCSI service I accidentially deleted the original dependicies... that doesn't work :)

Are both servers joined to the domain?

yes they are. I also get the error when I from server1 try to validate server1

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

I don't expect this to be the reason but I thought I just wanted to mention that I first installed the Hyper-V role and then the cluster feature.

i think there actually is some kind of problem with the server service. let med check up on that...
Could it be that UAC is enabled? Right-click the cluster manager, choose "Run as administrator", try again.
