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
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
