I have a Clustered role consisting of an Bitvise SSH SFTP Server not failing over. The windows service does not start. I have other clustered roles on this cluster that have no trouble.  

When it tries to fail over, the following error appears in the Event log

have you checked the account being used is not locked out, disabled, or recently had password changed?
have you verified any security policy rights that user account should have is granted on that server?

Which user account should I be looking at?  The Windows service is running as Local System.

Sounds like the SSH service is running as an account that is neither a domain account nor a "well known" account such as the network service. So the SID lookup not successful during failover and the new node cannot start the service because it does not have an account to start it under.

I tried changing the SSH service to the domain administrator account, but afterwards the service would not start.

Well, getting the permissions so the service can run under a domain account, a well known account, or a managed service account (which is a specific type of domain account) will be essential to failover working. Which means understanding the requirements and poet tally working with the app vendor.

I spoke with the vendor, but they could offer no support.  I ended up removing the service from the cluster.

None of the solutions worked, so I abandoned the process.
