desaster scenario reinstall on failed node

Hi all,
How do I reinstall sql2k software on a failed/replaced a/p node ? TIA
If I understand the question, you had a cluster with two nodes, then one node failed and was replaced by a new physical server? If this is the case, install the OS, install Cluster Services (add node), and the install SQL Server on the new node. The SQL Server setup program should be smart enough to see the cluster and allow you to add another node to the exising single node cluster. ——————————–
