Experts,

After destroying "ABCdag1" in the Failover Cluster Management and the AD object under computers, I wanted to create a new cluster from scratch.

However after assigning the IP address and nodes in the wizard I get the following error:

An error occured while creating the cluster. An error occured creater cluster "CBAdag1". Access is denied.

The report isnt very helpful ( see attached )

Any advice would be appreciated.

hi

did you try to do a cleanup on all the nodes.

if not force a cleanup on all the participating nodes by running this from command line

CLUSTER NODE /FORCECLEANUP

and also do a cleanup of the persistent reservations on a disk formerly used by the cluster

CLUSTER NODE /CLEARPR:disknumber

then try recreating the cluster.

refer to this link on technet for fixing errors during cleanup.
