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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
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. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services". SQL Server Service Account is in the Administrators group on both local systems, and is a domain account. Account used for the installation is in the Administrators group on both local systems, and is a domain account. Have cancelled out of the install and rebooted both servers numerous times. Exact same error continues to occur. Cluster is active and all resources are owned by node #1 - the node where SQL Server Installation is being run. In the event viewer, I see: Event ID: 10 Description: The SQLBrowser service was unable to establish SQL instance and connectivity discovery". I am also seeing errors like: Source: SQLBrowser. The SQL configuration for SQL is inaccessible or invalid. Source: SQLBrowser. The Configuration of the AdminConnection\TCP protocol in the SQL instance xxxxxx i

SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 - installation issues

I'm receiving an error 11055 while trying to install SP3.  I've tracked the problem down to probably being the one described here , but unfortunately cannot follow the steps described there to resolve the problem as the tool they require has apparently been removed because it can damage installations.  Does anyone know another way of fixing this issue?

SQL 2005 Cluster SP3 installation

I have been reading up on installing sp3 on a 2005 cluster and I keep seeing • Run the SP3 Setup program on the primary node of the failover cluster instance. Does this mean log into the Virtual machine name which of course is attached to the active node and then run the setup. Or do I log directly into the primary node (NODE A) and execute Setup?Question 2.  after setup is completed and ther server is required to restart.  Do I need to run the same setup on (NODE B) which is now the primary node?

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems

I have SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition 9.00 1399.06 running on Windows XP.  I have upgraded to a Windows 7 64-bit computer, and have attempted to install SQL Server on this machine.  The install procedure failed, probably because I was installing from a copy of the install disks on a USB drive rather than the original CDs.  (I am carrying out the upgrade in a different country to my office and I did not want to risk losing the original install CDs). The install failed, and I realised that I had to install from CDs.  I then uninstalled all the SQL Server programs.  However, the uninstall procedure told me the program was already uninstalled.  However, when I try to reinstall from CDs, I am told that SQL Server Database Services, Analysis Servics, Notification Services and Integration Services are already installed. Therefore I am at an impasse.  I cannot uninstall the programs and I cannot reinstall the programs.  I have tried a registry cleaner (CCleaner) to get rid of registry settings and removed all SQL Server folders, but to no avail. How do I progress without having to reformat my entire computer?  I cannot believe that an installation procedure can be so limited - why isn't a reinstall option offered even if the computer records the programs to be present? I look forward to some suggestions on how to fix this. &n

Sql server 2005 - rename cluster to an old cluster name

We have a sql 2005 cluster on W2K8 cluster. It is a named instance say SRV1\A. Then I built a new W2K8 (with a diff cluster service name) but the same service account. Then I installed a new sql 2005 cluster say SRV2\A. Now when I bring down the sql server resources on SRV1 and try to rename SRV2\A to SRV1\A through the cluster admin, I get the error the network name already exists. I have tried bringing an old cluster and installing a new cluster with the same name and it works. Why am I not able to rename the name? Any advice would very helpful.Paul - SQL DBA
