Node Membership in Cluster

Updated: December 5, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Failover cluster nodes must have the ability to start the Cluster service, form a cluster (when a given node starts but no other nodes are up) and join a cluster (when a given node starts and discovers that one or more nodes are already up). This requires that certain conditions be met, for example, failover cluster nodes must run compatible versions of the operating system.

Events

Event ID Source Message

1011

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Cluster node %1 has been evicted from the failover cluster.

1070

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The node failed to join failover cluster '%1' due to error code '%2'.

1092

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Failed to form cluster '%1' with error code '%2'. Failover cluster will not be available.

1093

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The Cluster service cannot identify node '%1' as a member of failover cluster '%2'. If the computer name for this node was recently changed, consider reverting to the previous name. Alternatively, add the node to the failover cluster and if necessary, reinstall clustered applications.

1173

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Cluster service is shutting down because the membership engine detected a membership event while trying to join the server cluster. Shutting down is the normal response to this type of event. Cluster service will restart per the Service Manager's recovery actions.

1546

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' failed to form a failover cluster. This was due to one or more nodes executing incompatible versions of the cluster service software. If node '%1' or a different node in the cluster has been recently upgraded, please re-verify that all nodes are executing compatible versions of the cluster service software.

1547

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' attempted to join a failover cluster but failed due to incompatibility between versions of the cluster service software. If node '%1' or a different node in the cluster has been recently upgraded, please verify that the changed cluster deployment with different versions of the cluster service software is supported.

1548

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' established a communication session with node '%2' and detected that it is running a different but compatible version of the cluster service software. It is recommended that the same version of the cluster service software be installed on all nodes in the cluster.

1550

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' established a communication session with node '%2' without performing a version compatibility check because version compatibility checking is disabled. Disabling version compatibility checking is not supported.

1551

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' formed a failover cluster without performing a version compatibility check because version compatibility checking is disabled. Disabling version compatibility checking is not supported.

1570

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' failed to establish a communication session while joining the cluster. This was due to an authentication failure. Please verify that the nodes are running compatible versions of the cluster service software.

1571

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Node '%1' failed to establish a communication session while joining the cluster. This was due to an authorization failure. Please verify that the nodes are running compatible versions of the cluster service software.
