Installing SQL 2008 Failover Node

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


Can I install SQL on a failover node if SQL is currently online on the Primary Node?  Would this take SQL offline? I am struggling to find a downtime window hence the reason I would like to do this whilst SQL is online on the primary node.

Installing new SQL Failover Cluster Node



I have a 2 Node SQL Cluster.  Node A is the Primary Box where SQL was first installed and Node B is the Secondary Box where I added it to the Failover Cluster.

I now wish to replace Node A with a new Server (reason being, we have had issues with this and wish to rebuild it from scratch).  My question is...

If I move the SQL Resources onto Node B, can I then rebuild Node A Server and then add it as 'failover cluster node'?  Or will this not work as it will already detect that Node A was part of this Cluster before? And during the initial install did Node A install files that are required for Node B to work?

Error Changing Default Backup and Log locations on 2 Node SQL 2008 Failover Cluster


My setup is a SAN providing iSCSI targets for a 2 node SQL 2008 Failover cluster on Windows Server 2008.  With the SAN volumes created, MPIO and iSCSI targets defined on each node, I installed the SQL Server cluster with a single iSCSI target, and therefore assigned database files, log files and backup files to be on that single volume.

I have since added a separate volume for both log files and backup files.  All 3 volumes are online in the SQL Resource Group of the cluster and active on the SQL Server active node of the cluster, and all the volumes are accessible from Windows Explorer on both cluster nodes.

Through SQL Mgmt Studio, I changed the default location of the log files, and I changed the default backup location in the registry for each node.

When I try to create a new database, I get an error saying I do not have permission to access the log file volume.  When I try to restore a database, I get the same error when SQL Mgmt Studio tries to access and display the specified backup volume. The text of the error in each case is:

"Cannot access the specified path or file on the server.  Verify that you have the necessary security privileges and that the path or file exists.

If you know that the services account can access a specified file, type in the full path for the file in the File Name con

Installing both VS Pro 2008 and VWD2008


I work at an educational institution and in our computing labs we have Visual Studio Professional 2008 installed already. One of our academics has requested me to install Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition as they think it's easier for their beginner students to learn, but I've noticed it wants to install it in the same folder as our Visual Studio Professional install.

Can both be installed without the limited VWD interfering with the Professional version?

Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.

Was installing SQL 2008 Enterprise last night via RDP. When I came in this morning, I was disconnect

When I opened a connection, the old connection was gone, perhaps a reboot? I am able to connect to the instance from the server and create a table  and query a DB.  I am however unable to connect to the Instance from my 2005 client. How can I tell the install was successful? Looking in the event logs and not seeing anything around the time it would have completed. Additionally: I checked and Remote connections is enabled. TCP and Pipes are enabled. SQL Browser is stopped,when attempt to access to start that I get an error: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices asssociated with it [0X80070422] I can't telnet into 1433 on the server.. might be firewall. Do I really need to open that manually? My client is SQL 2005, I believe I've connect to sql 2008 DBs. Should I upgrade the client on my client? I attempted to stop and start the instance. when I started it I got this mess: Server stack trace:    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.FindObjectExplorerFrame()    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.GetObjectExplorer(Boolean activateWindow)    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.VSIntegration.ObjectExplorer.ObjectExplorer.ShowError(Exception e)    at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.UI.

Unable to install SQL Server 2008 Express R2 after installing .NET 4.0

Hi experts, I intend to redistribute SQL Server 2008 Express R2 in my installer. I've extracted the setup files from SQLEXPR32_x86.exe and pass in the appropriate command line parameters during the setup. Recently, I noticed if I applied the following Windows Update: .NET 4.0 Client Profile, I will hit into the following error when I installed SQL express. .NET Runtime 4.0 Error Reporting EventType clr20r3, P1 setup100.exe, P2 10.50.1600.1, P3 4bb67524, P4 mscorlib, P5, P6 4ba1da6f, P7 44f0, P8 32, P9 system.security.security, P10 NIL. .NET Runtime Application: setup100.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.Security.SecurityException Stack: at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.DebugBreak() at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.Main() Running the setup.exe from a file server will give these errors but if I copied the entire setup files to a local folder and run setup.exe from there, it runs fine. May I know what am I missing? I definitely need to support to install SQL express running from a file server location. Thanks, MK

SQL server 2008 failover cluster install

Hello all, Looking for the definitive answer with supporting documentation (link). Does a SQL server 2008 cluster have to be installed as or run as a domain service account or can local accounts be used?  I looked for a document that stated yes or no and could not find one. If anyone can provide info it would be much appreciated. Have all ready looked at these 2 links of interest. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143504.aspx#Service_SID http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731002(WS.10).aspx Thanks in advance,
