Unanswered: Installing SQL 2000 On active/active cluster
I am trying to install SQL 2000 Ent on a Win2k3 cluster.
I have check both local and domain privlages and they are good.
I have performed MS work around so SQL sp2 and below can be installed on win2k3.
And I keep getting the following error during install...
An error occurred while creating virtual server resources for
clustering.Cluster specific registry entries couldn't be written.
Did you manage to resolve this issue? Did you get any USEFULL help from Microsoft support? Please post a few words of wisdom if so.
We have exactly the same problem and I've been struggling with it for a few weeks. Any help/advice is welcome.
I use SQL 2000 EE SP3 install (i.e with SP3 already included in installation) and still get the same error: "cluster-specific registry could not be written". All the simptoms are the same. I can install single-node virtual server, but if I try to install on both-nodes I've got mentioned message. The same happens if I try add second node to successfully installed single-node virtual server.
My issue ended up being security on the cluster was to tight.
Once I loosened my security policies it started working fine.
Specifically the registry was being locked down by a Windows 2000 DC which does'nt have all the proper setting that Windows 2003 has.
I eventually upgraded the DC to 2003 to help with this matter.
