I Have a server and is is Domain Controller, and i installed Sql server 2008 ent. When i try to install HPC in the step "Specify The Location of the cluster database" and you have two choice "Create a new database instance" and "Use and existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server".
I want to choice "Use and existing instance of Microsoft SQL Server" but i can not, that option its disable.
B) to use SQL 2005 on th head node ( or an exsiting instance on the local machine), youwill need to create a 'named'instance of sql called COMPUTECLUSTER, before HPC pack setup is run on the head node. Setup detects this and will allow you to pick this instance. thanks -parmita mehta pm
