Hyper-V Node can't see its own cluster

Lanky Doodle 206 Reputation points


We have a 3-node cluster, all running Server 2019. We've just done a patch cycle for them and after the reboots one of the nodes can no longer manage the cluster from Failover Cluster Manager. However VMs can run on it just fine (Live Migration works to and from it as well)

Opening Failover Cluster Manager on this node just shows no clusters and if we manually add it we get 'Access Denied' error. Error code is 0x80070005

We've tried:

Evict it
Reboot it
Rejoin it to cluster

All of that happens cleanly and successfully

All the usual services seem to be OK (Clustering, WMI, Server etc.)

I'm at a bit of a loss!

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having issues related to Cluster.

    1. Please try to reboot Cluster one more time.
    2. Run Cluster validation wizard and check Overall health of Cluster
    3. Run below command to give permission to your account.
      Import-Module FailoverClusters
      Grant-ClusterAccess -User <accountname> -Full
