Hi,

I've been encountering the following error when I try to start a cluster, but the status page says everything is fine. Is something happening or are there other steps I can try?

An unexpected error was encountered while setting up the cluster. Please retry and contact Databricks if the problem persists.

Hi @Rachel Kelley​ 

We have some internal service interruptions due to which we had this issue. Our engineering has applied the fix and the cluster startup works as expected.

Sincerely apologies for the inconvenience caused here.

Regards,

Darshan
