How to set up SQL Server 2008 R2 cluster?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 

I want to set up a SQL Server 2008 R2 Cluster with 2 nodes on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise servers.

Will there be any issue if the domain is Windows 2000 domain?

I believe there is a cluster validation wizard for Windows 2008 R2.  Can I use it to validate a server so if that server is ok, then I can purchase the same server with same hardware/configuration?

Eventually, I want to set up multi-site clustering.   Is there any additional area I should concern now so I will have less issue when I set up multi-site clustering?

named instance sql server 2008 install on cluster

  
I have a production two-node cluster with sql server 2008 sp1 cu7 running over windows server 2008 sp2. If I were to install a new named instance on this live environment, would it impair the default sql server instance functionality? I'm not referring to processor/io while the install is in progress. My question specifically is would the install process by its nature bring down the default instance. I'm pretty sure it won't, but don't see any documentation that would confirm this. thanks.

Is it required Create new cluster group for SQL2k8? 3. In 2 case what are the cluster groups I have to Create 4. Is it required to change connecting string from application? 5. If it is where i have to modify the connecting string in application level or in Database server level? 6. What are the settings can I take care after installing new sql server instance?  7. Is it required new virtual instance name for new installation (Instance)? 8.Is there any way to use existing virtual instance name for New instance?(so I belive no Need to change connecting string in application) 10.Is it possible to change instance name?(Old instance name to some other name and new instance name as existing instance name).  SNIVAS

Server 2008 R2 - SQL 2008 R2 Cluster - Planning

  
Hey SQL Experts, I'm in the planning time for a Server 2008R2/SQL 2008 R2 Cluster. As far as I know, the SQL 2008R2 Cluster is based on the cluster functions of Server 2008R2, right? Is it right to say (view on licenses): - for a sql cluster (2 nodes) you need server 2008R2 Enterprise licenses under it? -sql server 2008r2 enterprise license is only required, when I want to build a sql cluster bigger than 2 nodes, right? so on: -I know the active/passive cluster for failover, but is there a possibility to use a active/active cluster for loadbalancing/performace improves? (and failover, too? in case of failover, I know the performance in a Active/Active cluster will be bad...) -I need for every cluster functions (related to sql) a shared storage under the server, right?   Thanks for your help! regards, Tim      Thanks, regards, tim

SQL server 2008R2 install on a server 2008 R2 failover cluster. Other resources won't failover to o

  
As the subject says, I've built a fresh install w2k8r2 and sql2k8r2 failover cluster. Sql works fine on the primary node, but when I test a failover it breaks. Specifically, if I were to stop the node1 cluster service (causing the cluster to switch to node2), windows changes the cluster DNS appropriatly and moves the shared storage just fine, but sql server doesn't failover.  Server Name, Disk Drives and Other Resources all go offline. I've verified that the advanced policies of the server name, IP, cluster drives all have both nodes checked as possible owners However, Other resources only lists node1 as a possible owner and there appears to be no way to add node2.  Under the Other resources, SQL Server and SQL Server Agent are listed. I'm sorta stumped, I've been combing the forums and have found similar issues, but nothing seems to explain why the two resources won't failover.
