  • Trouble adding node to SQL cluster

    I'm trying to add a second node to a SQL cluster. I already installed SQL on the first node (as a new failover cluster), and I'm doing the install on the second (add node).

    See attached screen shot for the error.

    One the first node I created, I configured a domain service account for all the services, so I can't figure out where the second node is pulled the account name for the services from because it doesn't match up.

    The main issue is the SQL Server account name field (which I made red). It won't let me edit it and won't accept any password (or left blank).

      Yes. I ended up doing the advanced install with the config file and it pulled the correct service account information.
