SCCM2012 on SQL 2008 R2 cluster

Recommended Posts


I have a problem installing SCCM 2012 on the SQL 2008 R2 cluster. When it goes through the prerequisites, and I specify my SQL server, it connects fine, but when it comes to creating the database on the server it fails, saying that it can’t connect to the server.

I tried a different approach and installed a local copy of SQL 2008 R2. SCCM installed fine. I moved the database to the SQL cluster, tried to re-point to use cluster and it failed again. Here is some log from the attempt to re-point to cluster:


INFO: SQL Connection succeeded. Connection: clustername.domain MASTER, Type: Unsecure $$<Configuration Manager Setup><04-27-2012 10:32:34.107-60><thread=4056 (0xFD8)>

I tried to connect using the ODBC connection, name resolution and it was ok. Then I tried to use IP address instead of the name and I also used domain admin account and the same result.

I would appreciate your help.
