I have come here to try and get some help with an issue I am having with an SQL installation. My knowledge is really basic when it comes to DBA, but I will appreciate any help you can give me.
I was tasked with installing SQL 2000 Enterprise x64 Edition on both nodes of a fail over clustering setup. This nodes are running on Windows Server 2003 R2
The SQL 2000 installation warns me that it is incompatible with the OS and that I will need to apply SP4 afterwards. When I try to install SP4, everything goes fine until I get the following message (at about 2 minutes after the login prompt):
(Literal translation from Spanish)
The installation software could not complete the necesary operations on every node of the cluster.
And then it just crashes to desktop. After that, I can see the SQL Server, SQL Server Agent and SQL Server Fulltext resource on a disconnected status, but I guess that is just a process from the installation.
I went around a couple of Microsoft Articles which pointed me to some logs, but I couldn't really make anything out of them, specially when one of the last lines says everything went just fine. Maybe you people can help a newbie?
