SQL 2005 Failed on Cluster after hardening

Hi guys !!! would really appreciate if you can help…currently i am deploying a 2 node cluster where both are DC…that’s right…i know its very troublesome…after the hardening…my SQL 2005 cluster fails to start…Hence, i ran the command dcgpofix.exe to revert back to previous domain controller security policy state as before the hardening…However, the SQL still failed to start…i do not want to re-do everything from scratch again…pls help!!! thanks in advance… cheers… sarah
Microsoft specifically states that SQL Server 2005 clustering is not supported on domain controllers. I tried this once myself with no luck. I know you don’t want to hear this, but you need to go to your supervisor and tell them that this is not a Microsoft-supported option, and that if you insist on sticking with it, that you will not be able to get much, if any, help from Microsoft. —————————–
