Event ID 1196, 1119 DNS operation refused Cluster Servers


Event id 1196, 1119 FailoverClustering appearing on the clustered Exchange and SQL servers, although the cluster seems to be fine the errors are annoying. Cluster network name resource ‘SQL Network Name (MCCNPSQLDB00)’ failed to register DNS name ‘MCCNPSQLDB00.smtp25.org’ over adapter ‘Production VLAN 400’ for the following reason: DNS operation refused.



The cluster name resource which has been added to the DNS prior to setup active passive cluster ( or any type) need to be updated by the Physical nodes on behalf of the resource record itself. When the active node owns the resources it want to update the A record in the DNS database and DNS record which was created won’t allow any authenticated user to update the DNS record with the same owner


Delete the existing A record for the cluster name and re-create it and make sure select the box says “Allow any authenticated user to update DNS record with the same owner name “Don’t worry about breaking anything , this has “ZERO” impact to cluster simply delete the A record and re-create as it is suggested here.

    Do not forget to add everyone’s read access to the record after you re-create the record.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work! dddeccdeaccc

    After many hours of research have finally solved the problem!

    By default a cluster will try to register the DNS record to all available DNS servers, including the secondary DNS server (ISPs or other specified DNS). The solution is simple,


    2. Open cluster manager, right click on the cluster IP address, and take offline (will not affect your cluster rolls)

    3. Right click on tour cluster and click repair. WALLA issue fixed.
