Hyper-V Replica Broker Fails To Start

We have a Hyper-V Cluster installed, however, the Replica Broker now fails to start with the following critical events:
ID: 21502 'Hyper-V Replica Broker RBROKER' failed to register the service principal name: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation. (0x80072098).
ID: 1069 Cluster resource 'Hyper-V Replica Broker RBROKER' of type 'Virtual Machine Replication Broker' in clustered role 'RBROKER' failed.
ID: 21502 'Hyper-V Replica Broker RBROKER' failed to register the service principal name: Insufficient access rights to perform the operation. (0x80072098).
ID: 1254 Clustered role 'RBROKER' has exceeded its failover threshold.  It has exhausted the configured number of failover attempts within the failover period of time allotted to it and will be left in a failed state.  No additional attempts will be made to bring the role online or fail it over to another node in the cluster.  Please check the events associated with the failure.  After the issues causing the failure are resolved the role can be brought online manually or the cluster may attempt to bring it online again after the restart delay period.
ID: 1205 The Cluster service failed to bring clustered role 'RBROKER' completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered role.
ID: 1069 Cluster resource 'Hyper-V Replica Broker RBROKER' of type 'Virtual Machine Replication Broker' in clustered role 'RBROKER' failed.
We are very new to this functionality, so any help would be gratefully received.

Have you tried to use Setspn to see what spn's are present for the Broker service currently?
Does the service account used to run the Broker service have the permission to add / modify a SPN in AD?
Have you tried to manually add the SPN's?

Hi compdigit44, thanks for your response.

Setspn lists the following serviceprincipalnames:

Hyper-V Replica Service/RBROKER.xxxx.local
Hyper-V Replica Service/RBROKER
MSServerClusterMgmtAPI/RBROKER.xxxx.local
MSServerClusterMgmtAPI/RBROKER
MSClusterVirtualServer/RBROKER.xxxx.local
MSClusterVirtualServer/RBROKER
HOST/RBROKER.xxxx.local
HOST/RBROKER

The critical events show that the associated user is SYSTEM. How would I add the modify spn permission to this account?
Apologies for my ignorance, any help gratefully received.

Is this a production environment? Are the hyper-v host in their own OU?

I would try the following in a Lab
If not you could create a new OU and place them in there. Right click the OU and Delegrate full control the the cluster computer object...

The following article details the process

Option #1 did the trick

Thanks for the guidance.
