I was setting up an availability group in SQL Server 2012 on a pair of servers and came across the following error.
“the local node is not able to communicate with the wsfc cluster”
Interestingly enough, I had already installed an availability group on these two servers in another domain. I was changing domains (long story) and had decommissioned the cluster and wanted to set it back up. I knew I had already done the following:
Installed the latest Service Pack (2)
Validated the cluster
The fix was simply to remove the Availability Group option, re-apply it and then restart the SQL Server Service. After that, I was off and running.
