Linked server issue on test box, post upgrade 2005 to 2008 R2

  

In an effort to do some testing prior to upgrading our environment to 2008 R2, I made a test instance on our Dev box.  2005 instance, copied as many things as I could think of from various other instances.  Made a basic linked server to our main cluster, had a repeating job to email me results of a query across that link every few hours.

 

Everything was working fine until the upgrade finished.  It completed at ~7pm.  The email at 6PM came through fine (while the upgrade was in progress), the email at 8pm didn't come through.  Checked various things (DB mail was still working, tested fine).  It couldn't access the data across the linked server.  I tried deleting that link and remaking it.  Errors out.  Tried running the same scripts we use to create our standard linked servers, error out.  The only ones that I can set up and function are links to other instances on the same box.

I've looked around at other fixes for this error message and none seem to make any difference.  Log in with Domain cred's, log in with the sa account, no difference.  I can connect from other instances & servers back to this one, just not outbound from this one.  And it worked prior to the upgrade I applied to it.  All other instances on the box are 2005 as well.

Here is the message I ge

Sql Cluster Upgrade to 2008 R2

  

I am testing the upgrade process of SQL Server 2008 to 2008 R2 in a Windows Server 2008 Clustering environment.

After upgrading the Shared Components in the passive node, I was unable to fail over SQL Server.  The error I got was: The SQL Server (<InstanceName>) service terminated with service-specific error 17058 (0x42A2).

After much digging without success, I proceeded to upgrade SQL Server to 2008 R2 on the passive node.  After the upgrade, moving SQL Server to the passive node returned the following:

The action 'Move to node <NodeB>' did not complete.  An error occurred moving the clustered service or application 'SQL Server (<InstanceName>)'.  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.

All shared resources have both nodes as possible owners, and failover works just fine before the upgra

SQLServer 2008 Tools and SQL 2005 Cluster

  
I recently built a SQL Server 2005 cluster on the o/s Windows Server 2008 R2.  I have been attempting to connect to the cluster from my Windows 7 dekstop with my SQL Server 2008 Tool set.  I have been unable to attach to this cluster since its creation. The firewall is temp off, remote connections in the surface area configuration is set to pipes and tcp/ip and the Browser surface is up and running. I ran Wireshark against the cluster and I could see that there was UDP conversations for ms-sql-m (SQL Port) but that was as far as it would get.  I am using a named instance so not using 1433, but I do see the cluster offering up high RPC ports but the client never responds after the initial UDP response. When I noticed that there was a two way conversation taking place, I went to a seperate machine and fired up SQL Server 2005 Tools and I was easily able to attach to the cluster.  So my question is - Are there any known incompatibilities between SQL Server 2005 cluster services and SQL Server 2008 Tool set?  I can use my 2008 tools to attach to a non-clustered SQL Server 2005 w/o issue.   Error when attempting to connect: A network-related or instance-specific error occured while establishing a connection to sql server.  The server was not found or was not accessible.  Verify that the instance name is correct and the SQL Server is con
