While installation of sql server 2008 r2 on window cluster environment, we came across very strange situation with below error that says “ The resource failed to come online due to the failure of one or more provider resources. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80071736)”.
Now to find out the reason of failure, we gone through the logs but no clue. Again we check the failover cluster management window, surprise to see that quorum was running on passive node. 😉
Then we brought quorum drive and other resource to active node, started setup again for sql server 2008 r2. This time it ran successfully without any error 🙂
