Having the Physical node being displayed as the SSO Server is a problem. I would have expected that the Cluster Resource group Server name should have been populated in the SSO server field.
Even though we already ran the ssomanage -updatedb XMLFile command I figured that I would run it again. (What is the definition of insanity, running a task over and over again but expecting a different result?) So when we ran this command and included our Cluster Resource group server name in the file, it still did not have an effect even though the command was "successful".
When I went back and ran the ssoconfig.exe -status command it still indicated that the SSO secret server was the phyiscal node and not the Clustered Resource group server name.
After hunting through the online documentation, I ran into the following:
If you do not click to select the Use Network Name for computer name check box, SSO client computers will generate an error similar to the following when they try to contact this clustered instance of the Enterprise SSO service:
Failed to retrieve master secrets.
Verify that the master secret server name is correct and that it is available. Secret Server Name: ENTSSO Error Code: 0x800706D9, there are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.
The error messages are different, but it did seem applicable to our situation. I then went into the Failover Cluster Managment MMC and found that the "Use Network Name for computer name had not been checked off".
We also had to add a Network Name and IP Address as dependencies for this configuration to be set.
Upon bouncing the ESSO service and running the ssomanage -updatedb XMLFile and ssoconfig.exe -status commands the proper SSO Secret Server name was being populated. After performing these steps, we were able to restore the Master Secret server on all nodes without issue.
