When it rains, it pours. In the last few days last few contacts from my customers were for cluster related issues. Once again, SQL Server resource was not coming online in failover cluster manager. I asked them to check if ERRORLOG is being generated and if yes, share the content. SQL SERVER – Where is ERRORLOG? Various Ways to Find ERRORLOG Location. Let us learn how to fix Unable to Bring Resource Online.

Here are the messaged reported in ERRORLOG.

2016-10-27 08:27:09.71 spid10s Error: 26054, Severity: 16, State: 1.
2016-10-27 08:27:09.71 spid10s Could not find any IP address that this SQL Server instance depends upon. Make sure that the cluster service is running, that the dependency relationship between SQL Server and Network Name resources is correct, and that the IP addresses on which this SQL Server instance depends are available. Error code: 0x103.
2016-10-27 06:28:11.72 spid10s Error: 17182, Severity: 16, State: 1.

2016-10-27 06:28:11.74 spid10s SQL Server could not spawn FRunCommunicationsManager thread. Check the SQL Server error log and the Windows event logs for information about possible related problems.

I asked them the change which they made in this cluster and the informed that they changed virtual server name of SQL Server.

SOLUTION/WORKAROUND

Since resources were recreated and dependencies were not set properly. Here is the dependency tree.

  • SQL Server > Depends on All Disks and Network Name.
  • Network Name > Depends on IP Address.
  • IP Address > Depends on None.
  • Disks > Depends on None. If there are mount points, then they would have dependency on disk.
  • SQL Server Agent > Depends on SQL Server.

The easiest way to see dependency is by using inbuilt tools of the Cluster Manager as shown below.

SQL SERVER - Unable to Bring Resource Online - Error - Could Not Find Any IP Address that this SQL Server Instance Depends Upon Dependency-800x400

Once dependencies were corrected, SQL Server was able to come online.

Have you faced a similar error with some other solution?
