  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.0


A failover cluster fails with the following error during installation of MSSQL Server 2008 on a container that is a member of the cluster:

Error: The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the resource, or the node is not a possible owner of the resource. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80071397)


Such issues can happen if the server name of the container where MS SQL 2008 is being installed has lower-case letters.

To successfully complete the installation, change the host name of the container to all upper-case letters. It can be done using this command on the node:

vzctl set CTID --hostname UPPER_CASE_NAME
