Thank you for taking the time to do this!!! it was very helpful.
just what i was looking for! great deployment guide.
Do you actually need a separate NIC for cluster heartbeat? I thought the need has been removed in Windows 2008 R2 Cluster especially when the cluster quorum is using disk and node majority and ‘heartbeating’ in this case will be achieved by availability of the shared witness disk.
As you said, in some scenarios seperate heartbeat is not a requirment, but if you are doing a cluster shared disk, it is recommended to have it on a seperate NIC. Just to seperate the traffic. In 2008 R2 the heartbeating is done on all Cluster Networks and not a specific one as per se, but having redundancy is best.
I am getting the following error during above installation. Please help.
SQL Server Setup has encounterd the following error:
the folder path specified is invalid. Please enter a valid folder path.. Folder path=Data
Error code 0x84b40000.
The failover cluster is working fine.
Thanks in advance.
Have you made sure you run the setup as Administrator ?
That great, thnx dude.
Looks a good article, doesn’t seem so hard looking at this article.
Thanks really a great article.
you’re simply the best. Thx a lot. very helpful
Yes, let me add to this – thanks! One point: on hardened environments like Army Golden Master SeDebugPrivilege is *not* granted to Administrators. Be sure to grant this priv to the account performing the install or M$ will fail the install at the very end with “Access Denied” errors. I ended up uninstalling SQL Server 2008 R2 and tearing down the whole cluster and starting again to fix the problem. But with the priv set and by planning carefully (with lots of verification) I’m up and running.
I do have Firewall disabled for private / domain interfaces (per the M$ best-practices specs) and at some point I’ll probably try to get it enabled to meet military spec but I’m not sure what the implications will be (RPC is the big worry for DTC based on dynamic ports).
Thanks again for the article.
Awesome….great blog for a SQL single instance cluster…do you have something for a multiple instance (active-active) cluster configuration?
Thank you very much. Great job.
