I have 4 nodes cluster environment with quite a few instances. I just installed a new 2008R2 instance on 2 nodes, and it can fail over among the 2. After I add a node on the third node, weird thing happened. the instance doesn't fail over to the third node, and keeps showing online pending status. While it is online pending, I can connect to the sqlserver instance through ssms. After a while, it will fail back to other nodes. All other cluster resources fail over successfully,e.g. storage, network, but not the SQL Server. Could anybody please give some help? Thanks.

make sure your third node has enought resource like memory to take over the new instance.

You mentioned 'After a while, it will fail back to other nodes ...' I think it probably because the cluster found the second node (new node you installed) can't take over the instance, then turn to the third one (the other one of the first two nodes you did installation).

Hi,

Please check following:-

1. Check Eventvwr to get insight of error if any.
2. Check SQL Server Error Log.
3. Check all resources are online and have no issues.
4. Create/Configure Cluster Error Log to check exact issue.

Please check individually on all three server nodes and then post if you saw any error.

Regards,

Ankur

Thanks for all the reply. The problem resolved after the server bounce, which could not be done at the installation.
