Failed adding CSV: "Cluster request is not valid for this object"

    Question

  • Hi guys,

    I've presented a 600G FCoE LUN to 2 hosts running TP5, I managed to add the disk as 'available storage' to the cluster but when I try adding it as CSV I get :

    "Error code: 0x800713b8

    The cluster request is not valid for this object."

    if I take the disk out of cluster and assign a letter to it, I can access it, create file/folders in there so the disk is OK.

    Bad thing is,  I don't see any logs under system/applica/ failover-clustering or failover-clustering-CSVFs

    What could be wrong?

  • In server 2012R2 lab you could run DC role on the same server as the Hyper-v.

    Turns out, server 2016 TP5 doesn't like domain controller AND Hyper-v on a same machine.

    As soon as I uninstalled domain controller from the Hyper-v host and moved it to another machine everything started working as normal.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Based on my experience, this issue may be related to the bad configuration of storage. Please try to create a new volume for quorum and new storage for the cluster to have a test.

    Best Regards,

    Alvin Wang

  • Hi Alvin I even recreated the volume and the lun with no luck. Furthermore, same host with the same lun was running HV 2012R2 and I had a very happy CSV

  • Can you please post what you are seeing in the Cluster.log?

    1. On the node which currently owns the Physical Disk resource
    2. Attempt to enable for CSV
    3. Generate the last 5 min of the Cluster.log by running Get-ClusterLog -TimeSpan 5
    4. Browse to the C:\Windows\Cluster\Reports directory, and open the Cluster.log file
    5. Scroll to the bottom, look for errors associated with the CSV disk

    Thanks!

  • Hi Elden,

    I tried the same and found something

    00002420.00002b54::2016/05/06-23:59:42.837 INFO  [RES] Physical Disk: HarddiskpIsPartitionHidden: device \Device\Harddisk2\ClusterPartition1 0

    When I run the command below I do get 'disabled' in result, but how do you enable CSV in a 2016 cluster?

    (Get-Cluster).EnableSharedVolumes

    I ran this command, didn't fail to run but didn't change the status of EnableSharedVolumes property either!

    (Get-Cluster).EnableSharedVolumes= "Enabled"

  • That is the Win2008 R2 process for enabling CSV, and does not apply to Win2012 / Win2012 R2 / Win2016.  Cluster Shared Volumes and all the necessary binaries are installed along with the Failover Clustering feature by default.

    Are you running Full or Core or Nano?  Also, how did you install the Failover Clustering feature?  (Server Manager?  PowerShell?)

    You may need to remove the Failover Clustering feature, reboot, and re-add it back.  See this blog as well:

    Thanks!

  • Now it make sense. I'm running a full GUI installation with FCM installed via server manager. I'll try the solution and let u know how ir goes. Btw if u think this is a bug I'm happy to collect some loga for u.

  • I tried the same but I'm getting exactly the same error.

    cluster log still says 'CSV is not enabled'

  • This is very odd  :)

    What SKU are you running?  Datacenter / Standard / Hyper-V Server

    Also... is this a clean OS install or did you do an In-place Upgrade from a previous version?

  • Its a fresh install of full GUI datacenter

  • In server 2012R2 lab you could run DC role on the same server as the Hyper-v.

    Turns out, server 2016 TP5 doesn't like domain controller AND Hyper-v on a same machine.

  • Sorry to reopen such an old thread, but I'm stuck:

    I can't seem to be able to add CSV to a 2 node 2016 cluster, I pinpointed the issue to this error

    [API] s_ApiChangeCsvState: (5048)' because of 'CSV is not enabled'

    But since CSV are now "standard", why this is happening? Could it be the AD issue you were talking about? Seems impossible to me ... I'm running 2 X Datacenter version, pending activation (we are evaluating a vmware migration).

    Thank you for any hint!

  • Did you ever resolve this? I am having the same setup with the same problem.
    Thursday, August 24, 2017 1:47 PM
  • Do you know what is caused? It's like a bug?

    Because I'm facing on same problem.

  • I've resolved this issue.

    What I tested it

    1. Lab 1

    - Windows 2016 std Trial version with hyper-v and DC role and got same issue.

    - Removed DC role but still same issue.  ([API] s_ApiChangeCsvState: (5048)' because of 'CSV is not enabled')

    - Clean reinstall Windows 2016 std with hyper-v without DC role.

    - Working well.

    2. Lab 2

    - Windows 2016 std HPE OEM version with hyper-v without DC role

    - Working well


     I think the main problem is DC role but I don't know why.....Someone can explain about this problem? I spent a log of time to resolve this problem.

  • I am experiencing the same issue. 

    We use Netapp storage and in order to use snap manager (backup tool) we were forced to install the host guardian service.  The requirement of HGS is domain services.

    I have just clustered 2 Datacenter 2016 hyper-v nodes.   and cannot add available storage.

    The operation has failed.   There was an error adding 'xx' to cluster shared volumes.

    Can anyone assist?
