SYMPTOMS

On a failover cluster node of Windows Server 2008, the DNS suffix of the node’s fully qualified domain name (FQDN) differs from the domain name. In this scenario, the Cluster network name resource and the File Share Witness resource may not come online.

Additionally, the following event is logged in the System log:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering
Date: Date_Time
Event ID: 1127
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords:
User: SYSTEM
Computer: ComputerName
Description:
Cluster Network interface InterfaceName for cluster node NodeName on network NetworkName failed. Run the Validate a Configuration wizard to check your network configuration.

If you run the Validate A Configuration Wizard, all tests are passed.

Note A configuration in which the DNS suffix of the node’s FQDN differs from the domain name is also known as a disjointed namespace configuration.
