Error Code: 0x80071398 in SQLServer

Recently we are performed the storage migration of SQLServer 2008. After migration when we are trying to failover the instances we received below error for one the instance.

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.

If you read the error it is easy to identify the issue. The node that you are trying to failover may not be the possible owner of that instance.

Possible solution: To fix the issue go to Failover Cluster Manager à Select the instance à go to properties à you should select the NODE in the preferred owner’s List
