Updated: December 5, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

yellow

In a failover cluster, a clustered service or application can come online (and be available for clients to use) only when the necessary clustered resources within it can come online.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 1205
Source: Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: RCM_EVENT_GROUP_FAILED_ONLINE_OFFLINE
Message: The Cluster service failed to bring clustered service or application '%1' completely online or offline. One or more resources may be in a failed state. This may impact the availability of the clustered service or application.

Resolve

Check state of all resources in the clustered service or application

Note that in some situations where a clustered service or application does not come online correctly, the Cluster service, as it follows restart policies, might be able to restart the clustered service or application and bring it fully online.

If you do not currently have Event Viewer open, see "Opening Event Viewer and viewing events related to failover clustering." Review the event logs for information about all resources in this clustered service or application, and consider whether the following actions apply to your situation:

  • Confirm that resources are installed and configured correctly.
  • Confirm that dependencies are correctly configured for all resources in the clustered service or application. For more information, see "Viewing properties for a clustered resource."
  • Confirm that any underlying services or other software are started and can run successfully.

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on each clustered server, and the account you use must be a domain account, or you must have been delegated the equivalent authority.

Viewing properties for a clustered resource

To view properties for a clustered resource:

  1. To open the failover cluster snap-in, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Failover Cluster Management. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
  2. In the Failover Cluster Management snap-in, if the cluster you want to manage is not displayed, in the console tree, right-click Failover Cluster Management, click Manage a Cluster, and then select or specify the cluster that you want.
  3. If the console tree is collapsed, expand the tree under the cluster you want to manage, and then expand Services and Applications.
  4. In the console tree, click a clustered service or application.
  5. In the center pane, if you cannot see the clustered resource that you want to view, expand one or more visible resources until you see the clustered resource.
  6. Right-click the resource you want to view, and then click Properties.
  7. As needed, click tabs to view more resource properties. For example, for information about restart policies, click Policies, and for information about dependencies, click Dependencies.
  8. To see a diagram of the dependencies configured in the clustered service or application, click Cancel and then, in the Action pane, click Show Dependency Report. Scroll down in the report to see the diagram.

Opening Event Viewer and viewing events related to failover clustering

To open Event Viewer and view events related to failover clustering:

  1. If Server Manager is not already open, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
  2. In the console tree, expand Diagnostics, expand Event Viewer, expand Windows Logs, and then click System.
  3. To filter the events so that only events with a Source of FailoverClustering are shown, in the Actions pane, click Filter Current Log. On the Filter tab, in the Event sources box, select FailoverClustering. Select other options as appropriate, and then click OK.
  4. To sort the displayed events by date and time, in the center pane, click the Date and Time column heading.

Verify

Verify that the clustered service or application can come online, and observe whether additional events are logged regarding resources in the clustered service or application.

To perform the following procedures, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on each clustered server, and the account you use must be a domain account, or you must have been delegated the equivalent authority.

To verify that a clustered service or application can come online:

  3. If the console tree is collapsed, expand the tree under the cluster you want to manage, and then expand Services and Applications.
  4. Click the clustered service or application that you want to view. In the center pane, view the status of the clustered service or application and its associated resources. As needed, expand one or more visible resources until you see all the clustered resources you want to view.
  5. To bring a clustered service or application online, in the console pane, right-click it, and then click Bring this service or application online. You can observe the status of the associated clustered resources as the Cluster service attempts to bring them online.
