We upgraded a SQL2K5 standard edition cluster to 2K8. Now receive error during failover "The database 'master' cannot be opened because it is version 655. This server supports version 612 and earlier. A downgrade path is not supported."

Each node displays the proper version and runs fine but will not accept failover from the failing node. It appears each node thinks it's still running 2K5 and won't accept a 2K8 master db. I'm guessing we did not install on passive node but installed on active node instead.

Any thoughts on how to fix this since now we can't failover and get any node passive?

Where did you see this? Did you properly do "Add Node" in passive node?

Saw the error message in the application event log.
Didn't add a node. Just upgrading two existing instances on the cluster.
Or, I don't understand your question.

Your databases have been upgraded but it does not appear that the cluster upgrade has been completed. Check the link provided and verify your setup.

My guess is that the upgrade was not completed on the passive node, and a 2008 Master database cannot launch on a 2005 server.

Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log on each node and compare the contents, particularly the most recent folders & files.
