file server failover cluster 2008 r2

Hello,

I'm  trying to setup file services in a failover cluster with 2008 r2. Running through the "configure a service wizard, it fails to bring the resource on line with this error:  

The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or application 'computer'' completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered service or application.

Are all applicable disks defined in the cluster storage and the node set as a possible owner?  Double check your dependencies.

Also - did you create the share as a cluster resource using the "Provision a Shared Folder Wizard"?

In case you haven't seen this guide - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731844(WS.10).aspx

disks are defined
2 nodes set a possible owners
The only dependency is that defined by configure service wizard


Note:  server name resource status failed but IP and cluster disk are both online.  fyi, this name/ IP is a defined in dns as an "a record"

Kerberos status access denied? and luster network name resource 'Fileserver' failed to create its associated computer object in domain xyz' for the following reason: Unable to create computer account.

Was this a manually created record in DNS?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

we don't have ddns.  It's static bind dns

As well as DNS you will need to create a "COMPUTER" object in Active Directory for the network name resource. The article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950805 talks about recovering a deleted object - but this may not be the case for what you are doing. Instead try creating a new computer object of the correct name and enable it to see what happens.

Yes Thanks creating computer in active directory manually allowed the name resource to start
