Replication error updating replica
When attempting to move a physical disk resource-attached role - such as a file server for general use - in order to move the associated storage in an asynchronous stretch cluster, you receive an error.
If using the Failover Cluster Manager snap-in: Error The operation has failed. Error Code: 0x80071398 The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the group, or the node is not a possible owner of the group Move-Cluster Group -Name sr-fs-006 -Node sr-srv07 Move-Cluster Group : An error occurred while moving the clustered role 'sr-fs-006'. Move Cluster Group Command to move these PDR disks in an asynchronous stretched cluster.
Set-SRGroup -Computer Name [Computer Name] -Name [Replication Group Name] -Allow Volume Resize $true Before you grow the source data partition, ensure that the destination data partition has enough space to grow to an equal size.
Shrinking of data partition protected by Storage Replica is blocked. This parameter prevents admins from attempting to resize volumes prior to ensuring that there is sufficient space on the destination volume, typically because they were unaware of Storage Replica's presence.
Status: A process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights. Begin Processing() Test-SRTopology : Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Test SRTopology Command This is caused by the cluster functional level still being set to Windows Server 2012 R2 (i.e. Storage Replica is supposed to return a specific error here but instead returns an incorrect error mapping. If Cluster Functional Level = 9, that is the Windows 2016 Cluster Functional Level version needed to implement Storage Replica on this node.
Guidance: Possible causes include network failures, share creation failures for the remote replication group, or firewall settings.

If Cluster Functional Level is not 9, the Cluster Functional Level will need to be updated in order to implement Storage Replica on this node.
This section discusses known issues with Storage Replica in Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server, version 1709.
In Windows Server 2016, you may be unable to provision replication on a volume that was previously replicated or may find un-mountable volumes.
The cause of the slowdown is a by-design interoperability issue between the Storage Qo S feature in Windows Server 2016 and the manually attached Shared VHDX filter. Test-Sr Topology cmdlet does not accept IP address as input for target computer name parameter. Test SRTopology Command New-SRPartnership : Unable to create replication group test01, detailed reason: Failed to provision partition ed0dc93f-107c-4ab4-a785-afd687d3e734.The operation failed because either the specified cluster node is not the owner of the group, or the node is not a possible owner of the group At line:1 char:1 Move-Cluster Group -Name sr-fs-006 -Node sr-srv07 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Category Info : Not Specified: (:) [Move-Cluster Group], Cluster Cmdlet Exception Fully Qualified Error Id : Move-Cluster Group, Microsoft. This behavior has been changed in Windows Server, version 1709 to allow manual and automated failovers with asynchronous replication, based on customer feedback.When attempting to provision a cluster with only two nodes, prior to adding Storage Replica stretch replication, you attempt to add the disks in the second site to the Available Disks.This cmdlet does not remove data volumes nor data contained within those volumes.
In Windows Server 2016, when configuring replication, both the source and destination servers may show multiple Storage Replica\Admin event log 4004 warnings each during initial sync, with a status of "insufficient system resources exist to complete the API". These indicate that the servers do not have enough available memory (RAM) to perform both initial synchronization as well as run workloads.Either add RAM or reduce the used RAM from features and applications other than Storage Replica.
