    Unanswered: Windows 2008R2 Active / Passive Cluster

    I am an oracle dba who has had to take on SQL Server DBA duties.

    I have configured the operating system and verified the cluster for a Windows 2008R2 Active / Passive Cluster
    I am now going to install the SQL Server Instance and build my database on the first node. Do you know of a great link to a procedure that defines the steps in performing this phase of the installation?

    Also, do you know of a good link to a checklist for testing the sql cluster once the databases are installed?

    Start here. Note, the link goes to a SQL 2012 page, but there is a link at the top for other versions of the same article.

    Thanks MCrowley, that was the procedure I was using. The issue was that the one server had 8 updates that the other did not. Once the sysadmins installed the updates on the other node my installation completed.
