Hi there,

I apologise if i have missed suggestions from another posting. Its late and been working at this for a while.

The Cluster Validation completes with total success. However the Cluster Create fails with a message that it cannot successfully clean up. There is no further meaningful information thereafter.

I have created and disabled a computer account with the same name as the proposed cluster. This did not work.

I have removed and reinstalled the Failover Cluster service on both nodes, this did not work.

I have attached the validation report as well as the cluster create report.

If anyone can please assist me get this cluster created it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

This could be the permission issue.

We will establish a CNO already been created for the cluster name (Computer Name Object), you will delete it.

Create a new CNO.

A new created objects from computer are disabled.

This is created for the new object name on the Cluster 2 node cluster for the "Full Control" giving the right.

Please check the below blog post:

Hi Jai,

Thank you for the feedback.

I conducted the following steps:

1) On Domain Controller using AD i created a new Computer Object with the name of the Cluster to be created.
2) I disabled the computer account
3) I selected properties, securities, advanced and unchecked inheritance
4) Connected to one of the two nodes for the cluster
5) Ran the create cluster wizzard
6) Received the same 'unable to cleanup' error

Is there anything else i can try?

The infrastructure is as follows:

AD 1 (Domain Controller)
AD 2 (Domain Controller 2)
NodeA (Cluster Node)
NodeB (Cluster Node)

hi Jai,

Do you perhaps have any further suggestions? I am still unable to create the cluster. I am still experiencing the same issue.

Thank you

Hi Tommy,

1.If you have antivirus uninstall it
2.Check NIC teaming and drivers are same
3.Delete all the computer objects previously created for the this cluster
4.Create the computer object and give the admin account full control  which you are creating cluster
5.Use a administrator account which has rights to create computer account in AD.
6.Choose different Cluster Name

Hi Jai,

I repeated the process as suggested and still no joy.

I did notice that cluster create wizzard encounters the error at the IP Address configuration phase of the cluster create.

I was looking at the IP Address range we are using and am wondering if the wizzard is not checking that there are additional IP addresses available for the cluster? Due to the two active directories, and the networking teaming on both nodes, there is only 192.168.9.7 available for the cluster. 192.168.9.8 is not valid. Could this be the possible cause? Or am i off base there?

i would appreciate your thoughts on this.

Hi

How many Network cards are there in both nodes ? Which is Public IP ? Which is Private IP ?
The Cluster IP  should be in the same sub net. I don't see your both node have the same sub net IP address and disable IPv6 other unnecessary network cards.

Hi, this is in reference to your kannel question (which was closed so I can't post there)

I don't know the answer, kannel typically gets associated with these topics:
Short Message Service
Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)
Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)

with tags: kannel, bearerbox
You could I believe request attention on that question asking for it to be re-opened and those 3 topics added.

The cluster was successfully created by increasing available IP addresses. The initial subnet mask was too restrictive. I extended the available IP addresses and the cluster was successfully created.

Thus MS was looking for additional IP based on the size of available storage.
