Create Cluster SQL Server from NoCluster SQL Server backup

Create Cluster SQL Server from NoCluster SQL Server backup

Post by Micke » Tue, 09 Sep 2003 23:30:24



What are the steps that need to be taken to create a
Cluster SQL Server v2000 from a NonCluster SQL Server
v2000. Are there problems that can occur later by not set
up the Cluster when the server first installed.

Thank You,

Hello Mickey,

The steps are documented in SQL Server 2000 Books Online topic "How to
upgrade from a default instance to a default clustered instance of SQL
Server 2000 (Setup)".

The topic has the following Note:
"This upgrade is from a default instance (a local installation where the
data is on a local disk) to a clustered instance of MicrosoftSQL Server
2000. Use this upgrade step if you want to have a cluster disk."

This is not -correct.. The steps work if while installing default SQL
Server instance setup, you selected local drive for your binaries and a
clustered disk for the data.
