    Hi All
    we are installing the SQL server 2000 clustering on windows 2003 SP1. i did research online and got this:

    "Setup MS Data Access Components 2.6

    MS Data Access Components 2.6 installation is required before we perform the SQL Server Cluster installation on Windows 2003.

    You can extract the setup from SQL Server setup files with following command. D:Extract is a destination folder where the setup files will be extracted."

    i'm thinking that do i need to install MDAC 2.6 on windows 2003 SP1 before i install SQL clustering?



    thanks in advance for any feedback.

    It is better to patch server with latest MDAC which is not 2.6 but 2.81
    Search on microsoft/Google for MDAC 2.81 and download that.

    There is no need for an extra MDAC install. Windows 2003 SP1 with patches contain the latest MDAC (2.8x) already.
