I attempted to install (add) SQL Server 2005 - Analysis services to an existing SQL Server 2005 cluster group and found it did not appear to be possible. Running setup, there were only two options; (1) install a new failover cluster (specifically for Analysis services), new virtual server name, ip address, physical disk, etc...are required or (2) install it as standalone.
Based upon the article below, it appears to be possible, but how?
SQL Server Technical Article - Failover Clustering for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services states;
"If you cluster just the SQL Server Database Engine, you can cluster Analysis Services at a different time (and vice versa) and still add it to the same cluster group with SQL Server 2005 if you want. You do not have to add Analysis Services from the start; this allows you to expand your capabilities as your needs for various features within SQL Server change over time.”
Thank you for any information you may have.
