How to move SQL Server 2005 instance from non-clustered to cluster

How to move SQL Server 2005 instance from non-clustered to cluster

Post by Qm9nZGFuIF » Fri, 07 Dec 2007 05:30:05


I have two node cluster (active-pasive) and two instances of SQL server 2005
running on that cluster. Default SQL instance was installed as clustered, the
second named instance was not installed as clustered. I want to move named
instance form non-clustered to clustered. What is the recommended way for
moving non-clustered instance to clustered?

Thanks,
Bogdan

Create a new clustered instance and do a data-in-place migration.
