Can’t Join to a Windows 2008 R2 Cluster “The Computer is Joined to a Cluster”

Well here was an interesting one, I build two brand new cluster nodes and attempted to create cluster but when I selected the two nodes the UI proved an error with “The Computer “NAME” is Joined to the cluster”

This was weird as I had one just build them, anyway it turns out the the Cluster service was set to automatic whereas it should have been disabled, go figure something must have changed when I was not looking……


Change the service to disabled and you are all set
