Hello

I am installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on a 2 node cluster and reached the instance configuration in the wizard. There is a field to complete labeled "SQL Server Network Name"

The label above the field reads...

"Specify a network name for the new SQL Server failover cluster. This will be the name used to identify your cluster on the network"

How is this different than the host name my windows admin already gave me? Can I make the SQL Server Network Name the same as the host name? Why would I want/need another name?

Thanks
Dave

A networkname is a virtual client access point and each one must be unique in the domain just like a windows computername. If you have 4 clustered instances of sql server then you need 4 unique network names as well as the network name for the Windows cluster. Each node also needs a computername too.

For the instance client access point, you must also use a unique IP address too.
