  • Are you sure you didn't mistakenly log in with the local administrator account instead of the domain administrator?  I know I've inadvertently done that sometimes.

    Could you show the group membership of the account you are using?

  • ya, i actually used the domain name and the Administrator to loggin, which is Svr-server1\Administrator .

    and i also created a user with domain Administrator rights but is not working.

    Thank you very much for your concerns.

  • A few things...

    1. The server must be domain joined
    2. The server must be a Member Server (not a domain controller)
    3. You need to be logged on locally to the server with a Domain User account which is a member of the local Administrators group.  You do not need to be logged on with a Domain Admin account.
    4. Triple check that you are not logged on with a local account.  Using "Administrator" can get confusing, I recommend using your normal domain user account for yourself...

    Thanks!

    So Svr-server1 is the name of your domain and not the machine you are logging into?  Not what I generally see for a domain name, but something I regularly see for a server name.  That's why it looks a little strange.

  • sign out as Administrator, then when you sign in, give as "Switch to other user".

    Then give the user name as "domain\username". eg: if your domain is Contoso.com, and your user is Administrator, then log in as "contoso\Administrator" without the double quotes. You will then be able to launch the Failover Cluster Manager.
