VMM Server cluster failover fails with Error Code: 0x8007138d


I have installed a 2-node VMM Server 2016 failover cluster on Windows Server 2016 today, I found that I could not manually failover the VMM cluster service from node 1 to node 2, and failed with the following information:

The operation has failed

The action ‘Move’ did not complete

The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the group, or the node is not a possible owner of the group

Here is a screenshot:

FailOver SCVMM

The error is a bit strange to me as I can see the Node 2 was listed there when I performed the Move operation, and the cluster installation was successfully on both nodes.

At this point, I did some research, and found someone mentioned that the Node 2 might be not a possible owner for one or more of VMM Server failover cluster dependencies.

After several clicks, I found that the failed Node 2 was not a possible owner of IP address of VMM Server virtual server name like below, once I selected it back, the failover succeeded.

Then again Try to failover and Test.

Hope this Help’s 🙂
