Thanks for the article and bringing the possible show stopper in before I start installing my new cluster next month for a new project.

I added your article in briefcase, to be on safe side.

Sander,

I'm curious...Were there any suspicious-looking error messages in your installation logs?

Also, what did the Windows Event logs hold (both Application and System) for the failed service start that corresponds to the error message you displayed via screenshot?

I've never run into this error, but we maintain a few clusters and I'd love to have some errors to cross-ref if I run into something that looks very similar.

thanks,
Aaron

I've had this same issue. This isn't really related to just clusters. It's the same on a stand-alone SQL Server 2005 that does not have a power of 2 number of CPUs

There was no significant error that pointed out that is was CPU related. The thing was that I googled the error and and in the results I found a post by someone that was already removed that showed a little info that showed me the way.

But I'll post the errorlogs tomorrow.

You could be right. I haven't got the chance do test it with a standalone server. But the same article could help out with standalone servers.

Excellent Article. I ran into a very similar problem a while ago, and my final answer after struggling with it for quite some time and even taking the unusual step of contact MS tech support was to migrate that server to 2008.

If this article had been out then it would have saved a lot of time.

Great article, I had this a few months ago and used that method.

Hopefully this will save some people the time on google should they experience it.
