  • Connectivity problems that affect communication between cluster nodes or between a node and a domain controller.

  • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) settings that affect the cluster; for example, permissions needed by the computer account that is used by the cluster.

  • Configuration issues with the network infrastructure needed by the cluster; for example, issues with Domain Name System (DNS).

  • Issues with the availability of a cluster resource, such as a clustered file share.

  • Issues with the cluster storage.
