HPC Tools failed to install on a Win2008 SP1 Ent. Cluster Node RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi List,

    i have installed a win2008 Ent Cluster with sql 2005 std. SP1.
    The cluster is running. The cluster Service is running under the local service Account. the sql service is running under a domain account.
    When i'm installing the HPC Pack on the active node i get an error "HPC Setup encountered an error while interacting with the MS Win 2008 Failover Cluster. The Failover Cluster Service must be running on this node and an active Member of its cluster in order for hpc setup to continue".

    UAC and Firewall are disabled on both nodes.


    Any ideas out there.

    Kind regards

  • Setting up an HPC cluster with a high availability head node can be a bit tricky.
    Take a look at this video on the topic (the first part is general overview, the second has details on setting up failover) http://resourcekit.windowshpc.net/MORE_INFO/HPCHighAvailability.html

  • Hi again,

    for any others who having this problem here's the solution:

    install SQL 2005 64 Bit and NOT (like me;-)) SQL2005 32 Bit.

    That's all.


    Kind regards
