I have an issue where I cannot connect to an instance using the Cluster name. I can connect using the node name and instance name.

Everything was fine until we had to move the instances around to reboot the nodes.

When I try to use SSMS to connect by using CLUSTER\INSTANCE I get the following error:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)

When I try connecting using the NODE1\INSTANCE I can connect just fine.

There is another instance in the cluster that I can connect to just fine using CLUSTER\INSTANCE

We are using the Veritas Cluster Solution and both servers are running Windows Server 2008 with SQL 2008 R2

Your help is appreciated.

what version of VCS are you using?
have you contacted symantec or checked their knowledgebase for help?

Thanks for the help.

I am new to VCS and dont know much about it nor have i used the knowlege base, but started looking at it over the weekend.

Kind of weird because a co worker suggested I use a different name and it connected up fine. Until friday the name I was using working fine, but after moving the instances around a few time it stopped working. I will work at it a little, but since it working fine now I am not going to beat it to death.

Thank you very much for your help again.

What port are you using - the default 1433 ?

Is the Browser Service running ?

Have you checked Active Directory to verify the SPN ?
