I need to create a listener for cluster for SQL , and getting the error which is common and its;
The WSFC cluster could not bring the Network Name resource with DNS name ‘’ online. The DNS name may have been taken or have a conflict wit…
There is a solution which is adding some permissions to the cluster CNO, Can that change will be done in powershell.
one othe options is :
Option # 2 Pre-Stage the VCO
This option is useful in situations where the domain administrator does not allow the CNO “Read All Properties” and “Create computer Objects” permissions:
Ensure that you are logged in as a user that has permissions to create computer objects in the domain.
Open the Active Directory Users and Computers Snap-in (dsa.msc).
Right-click View and select “Advanced Features.”
Right click the OU/Container you want the VCO to reside in and click “New” -> “Computer.” In the example below, we are creating the listener object in the Computers container.
Provide a name for the object (this will be your listener name) and click “OK."
Right click the VCO you just created and select “Properties”. Click the Security tab.
Under Security tab, click the Add button. Enter the cluster named object (CNO). In this example, it is agcluster$. Click the Object Types button. Select Computers and click Ok.
Highlight the CNO, check the following permissions, and click “OK” (alternatively, choose Full Control)
