Failover doesn't work on Microsoft Exchange DAG

Event ID 1122, 1123, 1127, 1129, and 1135: Failover Cluster Network issues

Situation: The client have installed two windows 2008 r2 servers using Microsoft Failover Cluster for Exchange 2010. They have a failover  or DAG issue. They also receive Event ID 1122, 1123, 1127, 1129, and 1135.

 

Troubleshooting: Here are some case collections:

Case 1: Using the Validate a Configuration Wizard to review the network configuration
To use the Validate a Configuration Wizard to review the network configuration:
1. To open the failover cluster snap-in, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Failover Cluster Management. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
2. In the Failover Cluster Management snap-in, in the console tree, make sure Failover Cluster Management is selected. Then under Management, click Validate a Configuration.
3. Follow the instructions in the wizard to specify the cluster you want to test.
4. On the Testing Options page, select Run only tests I select.
5. On the Test Selection page, clear all check boxes except those for the Network tests.
6. Follow the instructions in the wizard to run the tests.
7. On the Summary page, click View Report.
We found the NIC has an issue. Updating the NIC drive fixes the problem.

Case 2: Opening Event Viewer and viewing events related to failover clustering
To open Event Viewer and view events related to failover clustering:
1. If Server Manager is not already open, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
2. In the console tree, expand Diagnostics, expand Event Viewer, expand Windows Logs, and then click System.
3. To filter the events so that only events with a Source of FailoverClustering are shown, in the Actions pane, click Filter Current Log. On the Filter tab, in the Event sources box, select FailoverClustering. Select other options as appropriate, and then click OK.
4. To sort the displayed events by date and time, in the center pane, click the Date and Time column heading.

We found many event related to virtual network. Restarting the VM fixes the problem.

Case 3: Check the network adapter, cables, and network configuration for the networks that connect the nodes. We found it is the bad cable.

case 4: Check hubs, switches, or bridges in the networks that connect the nodes. The problem is incorrect switch port configuration.

Also please refer to these post:

Event ID 1135: Cluster node was removed from failover cluster
Event ID 1129: Cluster network is partitioned
Event ID 1126 and 1127: Network is unreachable
Event ID: 1122 and 1123: lost network
Event ID 1126: Cluster network interface is unreachable
