Windows Cluster 2012 R2 - Impersonation Level Error



We are receiving an error saying "An unexpected error is keeping you from renaming the folder. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem. Error 0X80070542: Either a required impersonation level was not provided, or the provided impersonation level is invalid. The error occurs when attempting to rename the folder or file in the Volume folder. However, this only occurs on one of the nodes, depending on which node is the owner.


We experienced this with 2 of our customers. However, one of the customers upgraded the OS from 2012 R2 to 2016, therefore, the error did not occur again.


I would suggest openeing a support ticket via https://support.microsoft.com/oas or ask in the technical community. 

Since this community is more for discussion on support experiences and options there is little technical expertise available for this specific issue.
