Skype for Business –Always On – The attempt to create the network name and IP address for the listener failed

Hello Readers

I have been configuring SQL 2014 Always On within one of my labs and ran into the following issue when creating the Listener

The attempt to create the network name and IP address for the listener failed. The WSFC service may not be running or may be inaccessible in its current state, or the values provided for the network name and IP address may be incorrect. Check the state of the WSFC cluster and validate the network name and IP address with the network administrator.

The resolution I undertaken for this issue is as followed

Open Active Directory Users and Computers on your Domain Controller.

Right Click Servers OU (This is the OU where your Failover Cluster Object was created into and as you can see mine sits under (OU=Servers,OU=LyncME,DC=LyncMe,DC=Local)

Select Properties

Select Security Tab

Select Add

Select Object Types

Tick Computers

Press OK

image

Type the FDQN of your Failover Cluster

Press OK

Press Advanced

image

Select your Failover Cluster

Press Edit

image

Tick Create Computer Object

Press OK

Press Apply

Now retry your Failed SQL Always On Listener setup

And its should complete successfully and the window will disappear
