Node(s) server01.domain.com server02.domain.com cannot reach a writable domain controller. Please check connectivity of these nodes to the domain controllers.

Hello EE's

I need a assistance in making a cluster between 2 domain controllers..

I know its not recommended in making cluster with domain controllers...

Why am choosing this is use the hardware efficiently.. and its only for 2 3 vm's only..

Why am try to validate 2 nodes am coming with an error mentioned below.

"Node(s) server01.domain.com server02.domain.com cannot reach a writable domain controller. Please check connectivity of these nodes to the domain controllers."

Thank you

Forget "not recommended." Clustering ADDS is not supported and DOES break stuff. There is NO reason to cluster domain controllers since ADDS is a multimaster replicating design. There is zero benefit to clustering.

Dear Bros,

I am actually planning to cluster between 2 domains controllers only for hosting virtual machines.. not for any other services.

Is it still recommended??

No. You shouldn't be installing ADDS and Hyper-V in the same OSE and you can't cluster them if ADDS is installed.
