Hi everyone,

Basically, our Windows team has configured all needs for windows cluster.
What I need to do is to setup sql cluster.
I have done stand-alone installation on 2 servers previously.
So what I need now is to install cluster (advanced on left panel of installation screen). The question is do I need to run this installation on one node or both nodes?
The cluster is active/passive.

you are doing it the reverse way...

usually you set up the cluster nodes first...then install sql on the cluster...

but try installing the cluster on one node and see if you can add the sql resource...adding sql resource works in an existing cluster...i guess the services would be the same...

good luck

keeping it simple...
