My Configuration is a Fresh new Windows 2008 R2 machine Ready to create a 4 node cluster. When I run the Cluster validation Process it was all OK just create my cluster name With a IP and no storage. I did this in Powershell and it failed Why ? access Denied on creating the cluster .
What is wrong ?
Step One : Cluster Validation Reports all fine no major errors here.
Could it be a GPO that meshup my install ? <> NO
Firewall / other local settings <> NO
In powershell “admin mode” I did create a cluster / error creating cluster access denied.
Event logging : there are special eventlogs for clustering So I checked them.
So It looks OK no errors <> Dive Deeper.
The Cluster service successfully formed the failover cluster ‘ClusterName’.
So I can create the Cluster but after that I rolls back Whay ?
The cluster service has been stopped and set as disabled as part of cluster node cleanup.
So Access is denied Event ID 4657 I could use http://www.bing.com but there must be a hint to solve this.
There is also a Event ID 6 kerberos issues ? MaxTokenSize OK checked the register on this server. NO MaxTokenSize there.
Do I need this key ? Well I checked the Key for my domain account that I used for creating this cluster and yes It is member of 700 Groups
So I put in the MaxTokenSize key rebooted and created the cluster. Case solved.
