Cluster service fails to start with error code 1130 while joining the cluster on a Windows Server 2003-based computer

Support for Windows Server 2003 ended on July 14, 2015

Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

On a computer that is running Windows Server 2003, the Cluster service cannot start. It causes that you 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>
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>
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.

In the cluster.log file, you find the following information:

[JOIN] Unable to get join version data from sponsor <IP address> using NTLM package, status 1130
[JOIN] JoinVersion data for sponsor <IP address> is invalid, status 1130

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


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.
