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:
