Cluster network name resource failed to create its associated computer object in domain

Users might receive below error during the SQLServer failover cluster installation.

Cluster network name resource SQLINST1' failed to create its associated computer object in domain ‘' for the following reason: Unable to create computer account.

The text for the associated error code is: Access is denied.

Please work with your domain administrator to ensure that:
- The cluster identity 'SQLCLUSTER$' can create computer objects. By default all computer objects are created in the 'Computers' container; consult the domain administrator if this location has been changed.
- The quota for computer objects has not been reached.
- If there is an existing computer object, verify the Cluster Identity 'SQLCLUSTER$' has 'Full Control' permission to that computer object using the Active Directory Users and Computers tool.

You will receive above error because the user that you are running the installation does not have proper privileages to create computer object in the domain.

Ask your system admin either grant the permissions or create the computer object in advance. Once your System admin creates the computer object, you retry the installation and It should work successfully.

The action 'Move' did not complete

User might see below error when trying to failover the SQLServer instance from one node to another node. User might have recently installed a SQLServer cluster which has more than 1 node.

SQL Server cluster failover fails with Error Code: 0x80071398

The main reason for this error is the node where you are trying to failover might NOT the owner.

You need to verify all nodes in the Cluster are selected as Owenrs under “SQLServer Virtual Name” properties. As you see below screen shot, 2 nodes are not not part of the cluster . Once you check the box you will be able to failover SUCCESSFULLY without any issues.

error while loading shared libraries:

When working with UNIXODBC to connect to Microsoft SQLServer received following error

ERROR Database connection TEST: ADBC error 'Internal error         16  has occured'

I receive below error when using isql-v to test the connection

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I found that soft links are missing and after creating below links everything started working

Issue resolved after creating below soft links
# ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/
# ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

[01000][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib

I was testing unixODBC configuration to connect to SQLServer Database and received below error message

$ isql -v test_ds test_username test_password
[01000][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/u01/boxi/app/testsrv/sap_bobj/enterprise_xi40/linux_x64/odbc/lib/' : file not found
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

It looks like path does not exists, lets verify

ls: cannot access /u01/boxi/app/testsrv/sap_bobj/enterprise_xi40/linux_x64/odbc/lib/ No such file or directory

The patch does not exist, so update the correct path in odbc.ini and ran “isql –v” to test the connectivity

$ isql -v test_ds test_username test_password
[01000][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/u01/boxi/app/testsrv/sap_bobj/enterprise_xi40/linux_x64/odbc/7.0.1/lib/' : file not found
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

After updating correct library path, I still see same error. It looks like the environment variables might not set properly. I have verified the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and I see that path does not have right lib info.

After updating LD_LIBRARY_PATH with right library path I was able to connect successfully.

$ isql -v test_ds test_username test_password
