Errors in SQL Server 2012 Failover Cluster on Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone successfully installed a SQL Server 2012 Failover Cluster on Server 2012? I'm getting stuck at the Instance Configuration screen, i get an error when trying to detect the SQL Server Network Name, here is the error:

    The given network name is unusable because there was a failure trying to determine if the network name is valid for use by the clustered SQL instance due to the following error: 'The network address is invalid.'

    i am using oracle virtual boxes. previously i used vmware on the same machine for SQL 2008 and windows 2008 with out any issues.

    my cluster tests are passed with out any issues. is there any one out there have same issue. does any one have solution.

  • Are you giving proper IP Address which is in range?

    1. Can you please provide screenshot (use Insert Image) option in next reply
    2. Share the setup logs located under "c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Log"

    You can zip the folder and upload to SkyDrive or DropBox and provide us the link in next email.

  • Thanks balmukund.

    i figured out the issue and resolved myself. I have successfully installed the failover cluster.

    It took a while to figure out and very time consuming process.

    thanks

  • Trail and error. i uninstalled the guest additions the virtual box. then restarted the machine.

    SQL server installation did not complain. i wasn't sure about the root cause. but below article supported that i did the right thing.

  • If you are using Oracle Virtual Box- Uninstall the guest additions before proceeding

    on both nodes - it worked for me.
