I have an active/active cluster, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, with 5 instances of SQL Server 2008 Enterprise all at SP1 CU8.
I installed SP2 today and got the same issue on both servers - no error was brought up, it went through each of the instances, but the installer screen at the end showed the list of instances with red crosses rather than green ticks. The event logs are full
of promising statements like the one below, for Database Engine, Full Text etc.
"Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Database Engine Services - Update 'Service Pack 2 for SQL Server Database Services 2008 Core Instance (64-bit) (KB2285068)' installed successfully."
The version number of the SQL Server instances has increased to reflect SP2, so I'm wondering whether the error received is a red herring?
The setup bootstrap logs didn't have anything informative in them,and the only error message was one of these for eachof the 5 instances: "Error: Failed to run patch request for instance: N4 (exit code: -2068643839)"
Any thoughts would be appreciated
