Failover cluster manager, resource stuck in offline

When trying to bring it back online I get the following: Error Code: 0x8007139a, the cluster resource could not be brought online by resource manager.
The cluster events are spamming with ID's: 1069, 1205 and 1254
Under Networks in the Failover Cluster manager you will also see that Cluster Network 2 is down and both network connections have status Down.

If I go to services.exe and try to restart the Cluster Service in the list there than it will fail to restart and come to a stopped state.
If I than start this service again, than it comes to a running state.

When this service is again running I can go back to the Failover Cluster Manager and bring the cluster back online.

This happens from time to time on our server and I really want to know why and how to prevent it from happening again.

    Hi,
    For the event log IDs, you can refer to this article:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/failover-clustering/system-events
    The 1069 event is rather generic and just means that a resource failed. The error code 0x8007139a is also pretty generic and means "The cluster resource could not be brought online by the resource monitor."
    You can try the following methods:

    1. Restart the cluster service.
    2. Run “Clear-ClusterDiskReservation” and try again.
      https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/failoverclusters/clear-clusterdiskreservation?view=win10-ps
    3. Try to uninstall AV software and then try again.
    4. Check if there is a problem with the connection between the disk and the node.
    5. Check whether you have proper network settings at your place. Sometimes Network fluctuations cause of getting these kind of issues.
      If the disk still cannot bring online, please collect and upload Cluster Log:
      https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/failoverclusters/get-clusterlog?view=win10-ps

    Thanks for your time.
    Best regards,
    Danny
