Microsoft Windows Server 2003 - Cluster Service Fails to Start with Error Code 1130 While Joining the Cluster on a Windows Server 2003-based Computer

Issue

On a computer that is running Windows Server 2003, the Cluster service cannot start. It causes that we cannot join the node into a cluster. At the same time, the following events are added into the system event log:



Event Type: Warning
Event Source: ClusSvc
Event Category: Node Mgr
Event ID: 1107
Date: <date>
Time: <time>
User: N/A
Computer: <computer name>
Description:
Cluster node <name> failed to make a connection to the node over network <name>. The error code was 1130.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ClusSvc
Event Category: Node Mgr
Event ID: 1079
Date: <date>
Time: <time>
User: N/A
Computer: <computer name>

Description :

The node cannot join the server cluster because it cannot communicate with node <name> over any network configured for internal server cluster communication. Check the network configuration of the node and the server cluster.

Solution

The values of both registry items are inconsistent on different cluster nodes:

CAUTION: Using the Registry Editor incorrectly may cause symptoms requiring a reinstallation of the Windows operating system. Hewlett-Packard is not responsible for issues, which may result from incorrect use of the Registry Editor. Before making any changes to the registry take a backup.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0\NtlmMinServerSec

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0\NtlmMinClientSec

To fix the issue, ensure that both registry items have the same value on all Cluster nodes.

NOTE: You are required to restart the computer if you change the values of both mentioned registry items.
