One SQL instance was failed for SQL 2005 SP4 patching on 3 nodes cluster

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 

Hi All,

 

I did SQL 2005 SP4 patch for 4 SQL instances on 3 nodes cluster this morning. The patch on one SQL instance was failed due to permission issue . I login with my adm account which is in local admin group. We have done on test and DR box before and no problem at all. I had to use cluster admin tool to start the sql instance. Actually it has been patched to SP4 after I checked. Then I did failover the instance to another node. The server authentication was changed to windows mode only, all SQL logins failed to access databases. So I had to change the SQL to mix authentication mode and restart the instance.

Add instance to SQL 2005 cluster

  

Here is my current setup

2 node cluster with 5 SAN disks

I have 2 SQL Network names setup with 1 SQL instance on each

PRODSQL2K5\MSSQLSERVER_1

M:\   500GB

N:\   100GB

TESTSQL2K5\MSSQLSERVER_TEST

O:\   250GB

P:\   100GB

I would like to create another instance called

PRODSQL2K5\MSSQLSERVER_2 using disks M:\ and N:\  

Is this possible and is there a document I can follow.  I ran thru the setup, but it wants me to create a new virtual name or can I add this thru the cluster management software.  The servers are running Server 2008 Enterprise and I am running SQL 2005 Enterprise

Adding named instance of SQL Server 2005 failed - "Error Locating Server/Instance Specified"

  

We are trying to add a named instance to our Windows 2003 R2 x64 SP1/SQL Server 2005 SP3 server.  It has been running for about 3 years now with a single (default) instance.  When trying to add a named instance, it fails when it gets to the point where it is Updating System Databases - "SQL Server Setup could not connect to the database service for server configuration.  The error was:[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]SQL Network Interfaces: Error Locating Server/Instance Specified [xFFFFFFFF]. Refer to server error logs..."  We are using the local service account for both the default and new named instance.  Allow Remote Connections to This Server is enabled on the default instance. 

In Services, the new SQL Server service has started, but I cannot start the SQL Server Agent - it says it started and then stopped.  I cannot access the instance with SMS.  I rebooted the server and tried the process again with identical results.  I have successfully added a new instance to my test SQL Server using the same install files. Can anyone shed some light in this issue?  Thanks.

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

Login Failed for User "XXX" when login from a ETL machine for Sql Server 2005 SP2

  
Hi Guys, I have a straange issue with Login Failed errors coming intermittently probabaly twice in a week: I have a  production Database on Server A and we have Two ETL servers on Server B and Server C. Sometimes when the ETL's (SSIS) run from SERVER B I do get an error stating login failed for user "XXX" this user is a sql server user. And when I run the same package from Server C it does not give any error and runs smoothly. Both the packages uses the same configuration file to connect to the same database with the same user credentials. Also this error is not a frequent error but comes along once or twice in a weeK. Can anyone shed some light on this and let me know the root cause. Both servers have the same sql client version as well. All servers mentioned above are 64 bit windows 2003 servers. Raju

Instance and Default connection properties on SQL Server 2005

  
We had a sql server fail and I have been having troubles.  I compared the connection properties on the server properties and noticed that multiple default settings are no longer set.  So I'm wondering if during the failure these could have some gotten flipped.  DB's that worked all of a sudden don't work and we had to migrate to a different instance.  I have never changed any of the setings below and wonder what impact they would have if I changed them back to the default of an installed instance? ansi warning is checked ansi padding is checked ANSI NULLS is checked arithmetic abort is checked quoted identified is checked No Count is checked concat null yields null is checked Could anyone tell me how clearing these checked options will impact my db?   -- Paul Bergson MVP - Directory Services MCITP: Enterprise Administrator MCTS, MCT, MCSE, MCSA, Security+, BS CSci 2008, Vista, 2003, 2000 (Early Achiever), NT4 http://www.pbbergs.com    Twitter @pbbergs Please no e-mails, any questions should be posted in the NewsGroup This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

SQL Server 2005 - Installation in Cluster Environment - "Service SQL Server Browser (SQLBrowser) fai

  
Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition SP2 32-bit All updates and patches installed Two-node cluster environment configured. Cluster functions perfectly. Trying to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (32-bit) as a clustered application. Installation proceeds fine until it begins to install the SQL Server Database Services product. Status window says "Starting Services. Service: SQL Server Browser". Error message is presented: "Service 'SQL Server Browser' (SQLBrowser) failed to start.

Reinstalled SQL 2005 on cluster won't start.

  
OS: Windows Server 2003 32-bit. Cluster: 2-node Active/Passive We're working on upgrading from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008, and we're using this cluster to test the cluster upgrade/install procedures. So, updated the existing SQL 2005 instance to SQL 2008. This went fine. Added an additional SQL 2008 instance. This went fine. Uninstalled SQL 2008 (both instances) from both nodes. This went fine. Installed SQL 2005 (clustered setup). At the end of the install process, received a message about unable to do (something). However, the install reported successful. In the SQL0001_<computername>_Core(local) are these messages: Running: OpenPipeAction at: 2010/7/24 10:20:31 Complete: OpenPipeAction at: 2010/7/24 10:20:31, returned false Error: Action "OpenPipeAction" failed during execution. and much later: Error: Action "UninstallForRS2000Action" failed during execution.  Error information reported during run: Action: "UninstallForRS2000Action" will be marked as failed due to the following condition: In the SQL0001_<computername>_Core.log: Running: LaunchLocalBootstrapAction at: 2010/7/24 10:11:30 Error: Action "LaunchLocalBootstrapAction" threw an exception during execution.  Error information reported during run: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\setup.exe" finished and returned: 0 Aborting que

Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in starting the Process for the User

  
Could someone help with this please? I'm using VWD 2010 to build a new web site - I tried to add a new database file but it won't do it. I started by clicking on the folder 'App_Data', then right clicking and selecting 'Add new item' - after that I tried to add an SQL Server Database but received this message...  'Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in starting the Process for the User Instance' What does this mean? How do I start the 'Process for the User Instance'?  I imagined all that was done for me at the install stage, when I installed VWD2010, but it appears not.  Thank you for any help at all.    Regards

Hello everybody.I am working on Login control and I am new in ASP.NET. So far what I did is :1. In Website->ASP.NET Configuration I change the form authentication to internet.2.
