WSFC Server – The DataKeeper Volume is Not Available as a Cluster Resource Type After DataKeeper is Installed in a Microsoft WSFC Environment


The DataKeeper Volume is not available as a cluster resource type after DataKeeper is installed in a Microsoft WSFC environment.

The Event Log will include the following message: “Failed to register the ‘DataKeeper Volume’ Resource DLL (DataKeeperVolume.dll). Error: 70”


Resource DLL registration requires that all cluster nodes are up and online. In the case where one node of an existing cluster is currently unavailable (offline, cluster service stopped, etc.), automatic DataKeeper Resource DLL registration may fail during installation/update.

Suggested Action

The problem is normally corrected automatically when the other cluster node goes online. As soon as the DataKeeper service is started there, Resource DLL registration will be attempted from that node and registration will occur cluster-wide. In the event that automatic Resource DLL registration does not occur, restart the DataKeeper service on any node after all cluster nodes are up and online. The registration process begins 60 seconds after the DataKeeper service starts.
