Cannot Start Clustered Virtual Machine. The resource failed to come online due to the failure of one or more provider resources.

No Cluster Shared Volumes are visible in C:\ClusterStorage.

The is a Storage Space Implementation with two nodes and an azure cloud.

I have managed to get the StoragePool & CSV volumes online & in a healthy state after a power outage (Shown in fail-over cluster manager).

Having the following error when attempting to start a virtual machine.

Hi,

Did you by any chance (or a another person you don't know of) move the CNO (cluster computer account) to another OU? That could well be the issue.

Cheers

Unfortunately it is still sitting in the same position within AD.

I believe it may have something to do with the CSV volumes not appearing within C:\ClusterStorage on Host 1 & 2

Okay,

did you also check the Cluster IP Address and the Cluster Name resource? Also verify if the VM's are still in the same subnet.

My previous post was because virtual machines can use a Cluster Shared Volume only when communication between the cluster nodes and the volume is functioning correctly, including network connectivity, access, drivers, and other factors.

Thanks for your input. This case was resolved by removing all roles from the cluster followed by manually importing each virtual machine against a Hyper-V host. These have also now been added back into the cluster.

The reason why the virtual machines couldn't start is because they were pointing to CSV-01 & CSV-02. For some great magical reason both volumes defaulted to Volume1 & Volume2. I had to rename them again to CSV-01 & CSV-02.

Thanks for your assistance.
