I am trying to setup a 2-Node SQL 2008 Cluster on Windows 2008R2 (64-bit) using the sliptstream (SP3). I am getting the following error in the end:
The cluster resource 'SQL Server' could not be brought online. Error: The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007139F)
When I check the SQL Server log, I see the following:
The SQL Server Network Interface library could not register the Service Principal Name (SPN) for the SQL Server service. Error: 0x2098, state: 15. Failure to register an SPN may cause integrated authentication to fall back to NTLM instead of Kerberos. This is an informational message. Further action is only required if Kerberos authentication is required by authentication
Below is the output of setspn command that suggests SPN is registered:
D:>setspn -L <Service Account Name>
Registered ServicePrincipalNames for CN=,OU=Services Accounts,DC=,DC=
Can you please guide me how to resolve this issue?
