exchange 2010 failover clustering error 1207 and 1135 troubleshooting
Posted on 2014-02-05
I have a two-server DAG. one of the servers is logging two event id 1207 entries every 15 minutes. They state:
Cluster with name "ClusterName" could not be brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be updated in domain "domain.local" for the following reason: unable to update password for computer account.
The text for the associated error code is: RPC server unavailable
The cluster identity may lack permissions required to update the object.
"Cluster network name resource '%1' cannot be brought online. The computer object associated with the resource could not be updated in domain '%2' for the following reason: %3.
The text for the associated error code is: %4
The cluster identity '%5' may lack permissions required to update the object. Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that the cluster identity can update computer objects in the domain."
the other server in the DAG had one entry for error ID 1135 stating:
"Cluster node "EXCH10-2" was removed from the active failover cluster membership. Cluster service may have stopped...."
When I go to the DAG computer object in AD, I only see the exchange server with event ID 1135 listed in the permissions.
Also, if I do a nslookup for 192.168.35.20 (DAG IP), it fails. If I do a nslookup for DAG, it returns the previous IP. Not sure if that means anything to troubleshooting the 1207 error.
I am not sure if I should add the 1207 exchange server to the AD DAG computer object permissions or what. Not really sure where to start. I've looked at several resources online but am confused as to which AD objects I should look at and potentially edit, if any. This started 2 days ago.
Thanks a lot!
