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.
