Windows 2008 Verification of Failover Cluster...

Postby guest » Wed Dec 10, 2008 11:31 am

I literally spent two days on this before finding the resolution.

The problem occured for me on a fresh install of Windows 2008 with a brand
new cluster scripted from a batch file. I go to run an install of SQL 2008
from a batch file and I get the kb953748 error. Fresh install of Windows,
fresh cluster, fresh SQL... error message.

To resolve, you have to open Failover Cluster Management and under Manage
select to Validate the Cluster Configuration. Go through the process of
actually getting the validation report complete and then your cluster install
will go through.
