    hi, all

    Know this is a silly question, but our team has configured one-node cluster up and running and want me to install SQL 2005 clustered instance on the one-node, and then the other when the physical node is available (built). I told them I can't do this - they obviously want to add the other node at a later date.

    Thx, Satya..always there when we need you <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';-)' /><br /><br />So, I guess when we add the 2nd node, do we have to rerun the SQL Setup, or it will automatically do the install on the 2nd node?<br /><br />

    Yes, you need to run the setup...
