Installing SQL Clustering

To install SQL Server 2000's SQL clustering you must install a new SQL Server “within” the cluster. SQL Server is not something that is moved from a non-clustered configuration to a clustered configuration. With all resources running and in the online state, run the SQL Server setup program from the node that is online (like COLTST1). Figure 5.10 shows the SQL Server setup wizard and the initial dialog box where you will be able to specify the creation of a new “virtual” server (named VSQLDBARCH).
