Good morning EE's,

I would like to post a question which i really expecting a solution.

I got 2 domain in one single forest.

Domain 1: hg.corp
Domain 2: iac.corp (iac.corp is a tree domain under hg.corp forest)
Trust : Transitive trust between hg.corp and iac.corp

Domain controller 1: dc.hg.corp (for hg.corp)
Domain controller 2: iacdc.iac.corp (for iac.corp)

I want to make a Fail-over cluster between this 2 domain controllers ( But both are in different domain literally, but in same forest )

Process Validate cluster in dc.hg.corp
dc.hg.corp can added, but iacdc.iac.corp failed (Error: You do not have administrative privilages on the server 'iacdc')

Process Validate cluster in iacdc.iac.corp
iacdc.iac.corp can added, but dc.hg.corp failed (Error: You do not have administrative privilages on the server 'dc.hg.corp')

EE's please provide me a solution for this issue, So i can reduce server box counts.

Thank you
Shamil

In reality domain controllers high availability shouldn't be build with failover cluster.

You can have each domain ADC each within every site to get redundency and clients must be having preferred and alternate DNS servers set in tcp/ip so that if primary server gone down, secondary will take care of that.

I tried this scenario with with ad joined nodes also as a test.. Scenarios as below.

Cluster node 1: member01.hg.corp
Cluster node 2: member01.iac.corp

But it ends up with same isssue as "You do not have administrative privileges on the server".

I look forward to a solution. Kindly provide some ideas please.

Ok
Does your domain account you used to logon on member servers is member of local administrator on both servers ?
The requirement is that whatever user is logged on to the cluster nodes to run validation must be a local admin on each node in that cluster.

Does remote registry and server service is running on both servers ?
If not please start it
Also disable firewll completely on both servers by running below command in elevated command prompt
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off

It seems from screen shots that you are trying to add servers from different domains to a cluster which is just not supported
I can see you are trying to build cluster with domain controllers in different domains which is simply not required and not supported.
You must add member servers from same domain to cluster

This will not achieve any high availability since both domain controllers domain directory partition is different and this is not the way to achieve domain controllers HA

Please check my 1st comment for possible HA scenario
