Add possible Owner to a Cluster Shared Volume

Once a Shared Volumes becomes a Cluster Shared Volume you can’t modify the possible owner list from the Failover Cluster Manager Console.

If you try to “Move this shared volume to another node”, and that node is not a possible owner you get:

Operation has failed.

The action ‘Move to node <nodename>’ did not complete

Error code: 0x80071398. The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the group, or the node is not a possible owner of the group.

It can be changed by command line:

cluster . RES “Cluster Disk 1” /ADDOWNER:<nodename>
