I've looked around at other questions but my scenario appears to be a little unique, let me explain.
I have been tasked with creating a HA certificate services cluster. A little on our lab environment:
Dell powervault 3200 SAN (not I)
Single Dell Server running Server 2008r2, running hyper V.
Now, I want to create the cluster between 2 VM's on the same physical hardware, which my research shows is possible. I understand by design this is not an actual cluster, but just using this as POC in a lab environment.
-I have 3 VM's, all server 2008 R2 hosts, one DC and two running the CA role.
-I am runing the Microsoft ISCSI Target software on the Virtualized DC, and I have mapped 2 disks to each of the CA servers successfully. (Again, just as POC)
- The ISCSI disks were created from a VHD file located on the hyper V host. They are not located on the C drive but another drive carved out of the
- Disks can be brought on and offline on both CA servers. The idea was to have one of the cluster disks as a witness and one as the Data disk.
- Here is a link to the guide I followed almost to a T
Everything worked as it showed in the guide except for when the cluster validation test runs with both nodes it fails. If I run the Validation test on a single host it passes. Exact error I get is included as picture attachment.
It says access denied. Windows firewall disabled on all hosts, not too sure what else to check.
I am not running any other validation tests and have rebooted many times. Any help would be much appreciated. On a side note this is my first attempt at configuring a cluster! Any guides anyone have found particularly valuable would be
a bonus! Thanks again!
