OpenService 'RemoteRegistry' failed when building a 2008 R2 cluster

Hi

I’m trying to build a W2k8 R2 cluster using HP BL465 G6. Both server builds are identical and both are on identical hardware. When I run the Validate a Configuration Wizard and enter the name of the first server it validates it but when I enter the second server I get the error "OpenService 'RemoteRegistry' failed".

I get this error even if I run the validation wizard locally on the second server.

I have checked the Remote Registry service and it is started and using the Local Service logon.

Has anyone come across this before? I could understand if the validation failed on both servers but the fact that it works on node A but not B is a bit strange.

I’d appreciate any help on this one. I’ve gone through a lot of the MS documentation on 2008 clustering and there is nothing mention regarding this error – bar making sure the service is started which it is.

Thanks
Lorne

It sounds like the firewall is blocking remote management. Look at the link for instructions on how to create the appropriate firewall exceptions.

Thanks for the info Kevin. I got annoyed with it and rebuilding the server over night. It worked fine second time round!
