Having created a new cluster today I received the following error when trying to configure the File Server role:
Cannot complete this function. Ox800703eb
I had forgotten to give the Cluster Name Object (CNO) the permissions it requires in Active Directory.
On the OU that contains your cluster Server nodes \ CNO perform the following steps:
- Right-click the OU -> Properties -> Security -> Advanced
- Change the object type to 'Computer' and select your CNO.
- Grant it the following permissions: 'Create Computer Object' and 'Read All Properties'
- Then delete the role from cluster manager and re-add it.
