Access Denied While Creating a new Failover Cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to create a new failover cluster with nodes as 3 Windows Server 2012, all 3 have Failover Clustering installed. But the problem I am facing is when I try to create the Cluster.

    New-Cluster -Name MyCluster

    New-Cluster : An error occurred while performing the operation.
        An error occurred while creating the cluster 'myCluster'.
        An error occurred creating cluster 'myCluster'.
        Access is denied

    Am I missing something?


    Regards- Muralidhar

  • Did you provide the list of node names and the cluster IP address etc? Also, have you run cluster validation and does your account have the rights to create the cluster computer object in AD? (You can also pre-create it, diable the AD computer account and grant yourself full rights on that account)

    See syntax for New-Cluster here:

  • Yes I did the validation, it passed, I tried adding nodes as well but every time I I try it fails for the same reason, access denied while creating the cluster.
