Getting error when attempting to add Exchange server to Failover clustering in DAG

Hi guys,

I have a new Exchange server and, when going to add to the DAG, I am getting the following error:

The computer "node4" does not have the Failover Clustering feature installed.  Use Server Manager to install the feature on this computer.

I've gotten that before when trying to install clustering on SQL or Exchange on a remote box, but it was always attributed to WMI, or something simple. However, this is not so simple. WMI has been checked. My one question I do have, is that I have two NICs on this machine. I get NETBT errors in my event log stating that there is a duplicate name on the TCP network (it is the other IP on the other NIC). Could this be causing my issue? Also, please do not post links to articles. I know how to Google.

Thanks in advance for the help

Whatever conflicts you may have with duplicate IP's or names you need to resolve this.

The computer "node4" does not have the Failover Clustering feature installed
DAG members require Failover clustering to be installed. before you can add members to a DAG. Depending on the server OS you are using (2008 Ent or 2012 Std or Ent) has failover clustering feature. If you are using 2008R2 Std then you are going to have to install a new server with Enterprise.

When you try to install the failover clustering role do you get an error message? Just install the role first and then try to add the server as a DAG member. Remember that you also need to have the same hard drive geometry as well for Databases and Logs.

Will.

The question was resolved. I went through the DAG membership on the EMC and was able to function with no issues this way. The NETBT errors were resolved.
