I have a Windows failover cluster up and running, with two nodes.
I'm now trying to add a third node:
Add-ClusterNode -Name node3
this unfortunately fails with the following error:
The clustered role was not successfully created. Add-ClusterNode : An error occured while performing the operation. This operation returned because the timeout period expired.
node3 is joined to the domain like the other two instances, and all instances can talk to each other.
What could be causing this? I'm working with Windows server 2019 on EC2 (AWS)
I'm also seeing this error message when adding the node via cluster manager:
* Cluster service on node node3 did not reach the running state. The error code is 0x5ba
