Adding second node to SQL Server cluster fails.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
I have successfully created a MSCS cluster and I have the SQL cluster up and running on the first node.   When I put the install cd in the second node and go through the install it fails with the error SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error:  Object reference not set to an instance of an object. I'm assuming I get this error because on the cluster node configuration screen the "cluster network name" box is blank.   It won't let me select a name or type a name. The SQL cluster is up and running on the first node.   I can ping the sql cluster network name from both boxes.   The setup shows the installed node and the node I"m trying to add, so I don't see any problem. I have Windows 2008 R2 on both nodes and I'm installing SQL Server 2008 R2.   Any idea how I can get past this error?    Thank you.

Adding thrid Node to SS2K8 cluster fails on adding fileshare

  
I am attempting to add a third node to a two node cluster. I am using the SS2K8 SP1 slipstream I used to successfully install the other two nodes. The new node of the cluster is:  Hardware: Dell R610 blade  OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64 bit SQL: SQL Server 2008 SP1 64 bit Enterprise. The two node system has been running for months without problems. How do I fix a failure to add a file share for filestream because the value of group was null (Bold Italics below)? I have not found anything on the web that addresses this problem.

adding a node to existing SQL Server 2000 cluster

  

We have a SQL 2000 cluster pair, say node A and node B. The node B has been corrupted and now the SQL instance is running only on node A. The node B has been rebuilt from scratch and OS reinstalled.

Now, we need to add the node B to node A and they should have a SQL cluster pair. Any one can provide any steps how to add this newly built node to an existing SQL 2000 cluster.

Error Adding 2nd Cluster Node - Account Name Box Greyed Out

  

I am in the process of setting up a 2008 R2 SQL cluster using SQL 2008 R2.  I have the first node up and running, and all is well.  Going through the process to the add the 2nd node, I am stuck.

At the part where you configure the SQL service accounts, the SQL server agent account is greyed out.  Hovering your mouse over it shows that field as "Read-Only"  The box for the password you can type in, so I went ahead and put in the password I used for the account on the first node.  (it's a domain account with the corect privledges).  On the database engine section it lets me select my domain account and then I put in the password.  Clicking next gives me an error stating that the "Credentials you provided for the SQL Server Agent service are invalid."  

I know the password is correct, but without the accout name box being greyed out, I am not sure it is pointing to the right account.  Other people too are having this issue:  http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/aae80395-7d29-4a07-a1b7-29959e78d382   What is marked as a solution on that thread really isn't.  Follow up posts show other people at the same spot I am.

Adding a second node to a SQL 2005 Windows 2003 cluster - NewbieQ

  

Hi,

I've been asked to replace the hardware for one of our SQL 2005 cluster nodes because of it's age etc etc..  I have evicted the node from the cluster and added in the new one but now have to add the SQL component to it.  I'm not familiar with this bit!  I have found this guide on Technet

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191545(v=SQL.90).aspx

Which seems to be exactly what I need but I have a few questions;

1.  Do I install SQL 2005 on the new node and then perform the steps in the guide above or will it be installed as part of the process following the steps above?

2. Will the current active node go offline or anything like that during the installation? 

3. Do I run the setup from the new node or the current active node?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm new the clustering side of things and dont want to mess this bit up

Thanks in advance

Brian


Error Adding Node to SQL 2008 R2 Cluster

  

Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit. SQL 2008 R2 64bit.

The Windows Failover cluster is installed with 2 nodes. SQL Cluster was installed successfully on node 1. Ran SQL setup to add a SQL node 2. Made it to the service accounts screen. The SQL Server Agent service account name box is grayed out and nothing can be entered. If I hit next I get the following error. I can't get past this. I looked for any cumulitive updates for R2, but there aren't any. Does anyone have a work around? If not I will have to scrap the install and go back to the non R2 version of SQL.

[Error Message]
The credentials you provided for the SQL Server Agent service are invalid. To continue, provide a valid account and password for the SQL Server Agent service.

[Details]
Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.Agent.InputValidationException: The credentials you provided for the SQL Server Agent service are invalid. To continue, provide a valid account and password for the SQL Server Agent service.

Clustered SQL 2008 R2 x64, Oracle linked server works on one node, fails on the other

  

Juicy bits:

- SQL Server 2008 R2 x64

- Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: ) 

- Active/passive cluster

- Oracle client 11gR1

- "Allow Inprocess" provider option is enabled

 

I'm stumped.  Our development, QA and UAT environments are all running the same versions of Windows, SQL, and Oracle client.  Linked server between SQL and Oracle works just fine.

 

Production is clustered.  The linked server works just fine on one node of the cluster, but if we failover to the other node, attempts to use the linked server in any way, OPENQUERY, GUI, etc..., cause the following error:

OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "ORACLE" returned message "ORA-12634: Memory allocation failed".

Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "ORACLE".

 

What am I missing?  I've reinstalled the Oracle client on the defective node, verified that the SQL Server service account has full rights to the Oracle client dir

SQL server 2005 cluster - second node - sql service will not start - node is showing down in cluster

  

I am tryng to get the second node in a two node cluster to start sql services and come up in the cluster.  The second node was configured and running in a cluster when at some point, the sql service and/or cluster service went down.  Now the node will not start...as in SQL service fails and the system log error is:

"The disk associated with cluster disk resource 'Disk Q:' could not be found. The expected signature of the disk was BF17D33C. If the disk was removed from the server cluster, the resource should be deleted. If the disk was replaced, the resource must be deleted and created again in order to bring the disk online. If the disk has not been removed or replaced, it may be inaccessible at this time because it is reserved by another server cluster node."

and the Application log shows:

Error 2(The system cannot find the file specified.) occurred while opening file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\master.mdf' to obtain configuration information at startup. An invalid startup option might have caused the error. Verify your startup options, and correct or remove them if necessary.

I had to edit the startup parameters on the second node because it appears it cannot "see" the original path, which was a network driv

Windows 2008 64 Bit SP2

SQL installation failed with this error message:

Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'. Reason: Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error

Please let me know what the issue is.

I found 2 solutions in net:

1. Add new registry key named DisableLoopbackcheck under "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\" and set to value 1

2. Set server principal name


Error while adding 3rd node to a cluster --- Failed to retrieve data for this request.

  

Inside a virtual environment running Windows 2008r2 Ent SP1 and SQL 2008r2 RTM.

Inintial cluster build has gone smoothly for a 2 node cluster using iSCSI. Added up a third node to this cluster manually changed quorum model and MsDTC resource was bouncing all well on the three nodes. Sweat started when the third node failed to add into SQL Failover cluster with the given message "Failed to retrieve data for this request" right after clicking add a node.

Sites talk about adding CuP6 and to lower the security but to note all this worked for first & when adding second node, for the moment this was resolved for me after I restarted all the nodes; going from Node3 to 1. For a moment RemoteRegistry service failed to start on node2 and it wount work even on restarts so moved every thing to node1 now the RPC was up on Node2 and I can go further on adding node3 to SQL cluster but as I'm typing it failed again.

As I check the logs they point about failures to write to registry and at time Network Path not found, User credentials used are all same and pings are going well for the entrire set of IP's I have.

Any insights on this are highly appreciated?

HOW TO INSTALL SERVICE PACK 2 ON SQL SERVER 2008 2 NODE CLUSTER

SQL Server Service does not start on SQL Failover Cluster Node B even though i turn off Node A (acti

  

We ahev setup a SQL Server (64-bit) Failover Environment which consist of a Node A (active) and Node B (passif).

The setup was completed successfully and was working fine since june 2008.

Our system administrators have reported that, after they made some changes during a maintenance week-end, the SQL Server Services don't start anymore on the node B (even though they turn off the active node A and make Node B as active). Our attempts to manually start those services arealways failing.

Can someone help?
