I can not install HPC 2008 in SQL Ent 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    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.

    Somebody know why this? please

  •  A) sql 2008 is not supported for HPC pack v2 RTM.

    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.
