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.
