How To Patch A 2005 Cluster?

According to SP1 documentation patching the Active node in a cluster will automatically apply the SP1 patch to the Passive nodes. However, I found a MS document that says if you have management tools installed on the passive node, you must patch this node separately. Is this correct?

Also, since Integration Services is not cluster-aware and therefore must be installed separately to the passive node(s), does SP1 need to be applied directly to the passive node(s) to patch Integration Services or is it automatically patched when I patch the Active node?

Thanks, Dave

How To Upgrade SQL Server 2000 Cluster To SQL Server 2005 Cluster(Database)

Hi

 

We are planning to upgrade the SQL Server in our production environment from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005. This is a 4 Node cluster environment with 3 Databases on 3 Virtual instances. The main requirement is to achieve this with no/minimal downtime.

 

Could you please suggest or direct me to any documentation for the best practices used to upgrade such an environment?

 

Thanks

Upgrading A SQL Server 2000 Cluster To A SQL Server 2005 Cluster

 

We're upgrading a SQL Server 2000 cluster (Active/Passive) running on Windows 2000 Server to a SQL Server 2005 Cluster running on Windows Server 2003. We can't purchase new hardware and we have no spare hardware. We also need to move from Windows 2000 Server to Windows 2003 Server at the same time. We want to keep downtime to a bare minimum.

 What we were thinking was the following steps... Anyone try this?

1. Break the link between the servers.

2. Install a fresh copy of windows 2003 server on one side along with SQL Server 2005. While this step is running, the active node would still be live on Windows 2000 Server and SQL Server 2000 serving our customers.

3. Restore a copy of a backup from the active production side to the node we're upgrading and at that point we would bring the active node down, switching the active node to be the newly upgraded server.

4. As a final step, the old active node would now have the link to it broken, we would install a fresh copy of windows 2003 server on it and sql server 2005. At this point we would bring it back into the cluster and the cluster would be complete again.

 Thoughts?

??'s About Security Patch

I plan to apply the new security patch on my SQL 7.0 sp3 servers and get my SQL 2000 servers up to SP2 (which apparently already includes this)

But I was reading the Mitigating Factors in the announcement of this vulnerability and one reads as below:

"The effect of exploiting the first vulnerability would depend on how the SQL Server service was configured. SQL Server can be configured to run in a security context of the administrator’s choosing. (By default, it runs as a domain user). If best practices are followed, and the service is configured to run with the least privileges necessary, it would limit the worst-case damage an attacker could achieve. "

So my question is: What is the best practice for the SQL Server service and Agent service? Also are there resources for Best Practices?

Thanks!!

Do I Need To Reinstall Or Patch Something??

Hi,

I have discovered something wrong with my SSIS package and I thought it best to post a new thread since the problem is not what I thought it was initially.

With relation to my post of 'directory variable problem' I have now discovered by opening my project this morning that apparently my project had gone corrupt, according to the dev environment since the message reads:

"There were errors while the package was being loaded.The package might be corrupted.See the Error List for details."

The Error List:
"Error 13 Error loading MyTestSSISPackage.dtsx: The connection "(local).MyTestDB.sa" is not found. This error is thrown by Connections collection when the specific connection element is not found."
This is a buggy ADO.net connection that I deleted yesterday since, even though it connects successfully, doesn't want to work! It keeps on telling me log in failed for user <MyTestUser> even after I test it and it connects fine with the username and password during the UDL screen of the connection.. It's like it forgets the bloody password.
I created another connection, this time an OLE connection and it seems to work fine.

*EDITED*
I stand corrected..no bloody connection manager is working now. They all fail stating that they cannot connect to the db due to some or another 'unsupported' value in the connection string...the connectionstring was set up by the environment's udl????? how is this possible. I am beginning to get annoyed with SSIS

Now finally my question...WHY is it that every time I change something its like the dev environment doesn't cascade the change throughout the project or package? The problem I have been having with my variables not getting picked up with the correct values which I gave them during design time is probably also related to this. How or where can I remove the reference to this old ADO.Net connection since I cannot find it anywhere in the <package>.dtsx file?

Anyone ever experienced this?

Regards
Mike

Sql 2005 Cluster

we want to have an activepassive and active passive cluster.

node a install sql instance 1 failover over to node b

node b install sql instance 2 failover to node a

do I have to setup 2 cluster ?  ie. quorum, msdtc etc..

or just one cluster(quorum, ip and name), one msdtc group( as per MS msdtc doc) and 2 san disks (one for node a and one for node b.

 

is this correct?  I have looked and looked for a step by step on setting this up, no where can I find what i need.  I downloaded  the failover cluster doc from microsoft, book online etc..

SQL 2005 Std Cluster

Anyone know before I invest in the hardware if it is possible to have Two Clusters on the same hardware both in Active/Passive Clustering where Cluster1 and Cluster2 both use the Default SQL Server 2005 Instance (No Named Instances)?
 
This would be a Virtual Cluster with Two separate 2 node Clusters on the Same Hardware sharing the same OS and SQL.
 
Thanks in Advance,
 
Best,

Security Patch ,who Can Install It ?

Hi,

We have several sql servers and company policy
1. all sql servers should be updated with latest MS Security Patches
2.Updates should be done by domain admistrators team.
3.Domain admins not sa of sql servers

Early we removed BulitinAdmin group from all sql servers

When one of domain admin(domainJoeBlow ) started updates for Windows and SQL securiy patch, update failed

I give domainJoeBlow rights
to be server admin on sql ,update went half way and fail again.

When I gave domainJoeBlow sa right ,update completed with success

If we don't want domain admins to be sa on sql server, what rights should they given to install Security patches?

Thank you

SQL 2005 SP1 Install In A/A Cluster

Okay, it's a good thing no one from M$ is in the immediate (physical) vicinity...

I'm doing some preliminary testing on SQL 2005 in an Active/Active Cluster. I'm using Windows 2003 Enterprise, on a 2-node cluster using SCSI storage.

I installed a default instance and patched it to SP1. Then I installed a second (named) instance and attempted to patch it. That's where the fun began.

Read KB 918357 (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=918357).

Buried in the log files (good luck finding them) on the passive node was the error message "Unable to install Windows Installer MSP file".

You have to apply the instructions outlined in the previous KB to BOTH nodes in order to get SP1 to install. Alternatively, I suppose you could install SP1 on both instances at the same time, but if you add another instance into your cluster, you'd better watch out!

Also, another gotcha was that I had the default instance turned off during the SP1 installation. I had simply off lined the group (including the disks) instead of offlining the SQL Resource. Buried in the log files on the passive node was an error message indicating that the installer could not find the owner for the S: drive (the data drive for the default instance). Why the installer should CARE who owns the S: drive when it shouldn't be doing anything with it, I don't know.

What a total PITA!!!!

I am going to go have a beer...or two...or three......

Regards,

hmscott


BTW, the log files for the SP install are in C:WindowsHotfixSQL9. The log files for the base install are in C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server90Bootstrap

$#@$#%! SQL 2005 Cluster Install!

I have YET to have a 100% CLEAN install of SQL 2005 in a clustered environment. SQL 2005 Std. was not so bad, I think I finally managed a 99% clean install (no script errors on patches) on the third try.

SQL 2005 EE keeps erroring off on 2153 patch install. The error logs are no help at all; they simply stop logging activity at about the point that the error occurs.

For a premier product, this installation SUCKS.


Whooo. Okay. I feel better.

Here's my situation:
4-node Cluster (Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition), SP1
SQL 2005 Enterprise Edition


Process:
Install OS
Patch OS to SP1
Cluster OS on SAN
Configure Cluster Groups (DBC01, DBC02, DBC03) with cluster disks
Configure MSDTC (network access, configure cluster resources)

Start SQL Installation
Install RTM Binaries on Node 1 for Default Instance
Install Workstation and non-cluster components on remaining nodes
Install RTM Binaries on Node 2 for Named Instance

Reboot all nodes

Install SP1 for all instances from node 1

Install SP1 for all local services/applications for all other nodes

While attempting to install the 2153 SQL patch/hotfix, the process will either:
Hang while waiting for the first passive node for the default instance; or
Crash immediately with no error messages in the logs.


This is no nearly detailed enough, I know. I'm missing error messages and more. It's snowing outside and I have to get home. I just think that the installation for this product in a clustered environment is very unstraightforward at best, and at worst is a real liability to an organization since it's practically impossible to get it clean the first time through.

Removing AS 2005 From A Cluster

I am trying to remove Analysis Server from a cluster. I have done the research and according to MS you can't use the regular add/remove programs dialog to remove a component. You have to use the setup.exe from the command line.
This article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910230) explains at the very bottom to run this command "Start /wait <DiskDrive>setup.exe /qb REMOVE=Analysis_Server INSTANCENAME=<InstanceName>". Well I do that and I get the installer up and running but when it gets to that system configuration check screen, where it runs a bunch of checks on the nodes, it just closes before it does any checks and nothing further happens. I can't find any error in the event log or find any log files on disk related to why its just closing.

Just to investigate further, I wondered what executable was running when you ran the installer though the add/remove programs dialog, so I looked in the registry. Well along with the SQL Server 2005 entry, which runs the setup bootstrap program in your default install folder, I noticed an entry that was idenified only by its GUID. Looking at the sub keys I noticed the DisplayName was Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. The UninstallString key was set to "MsiExec.exe /I{52B0D62A-860D-4136-9A8A-9FD877E8EE89}" so I ran that. The installer seems to work, but it doesnt run any configuration checks. I get to the screen with the big button to change components with no errors. Then it acutally shows Analysis Services installed (the disk icon is not xed out), I can then click and select entire feature will be unavailable. I haven't proceeded on this step because I am worried about the cluster.

I am assuming that this uninstaller will only remove analysis services from the node its running on. This is fine, cause I can just run this same procedure on all the nodes... and then i would assume I would have to manually clean up the cluster resource. But I have not tested this, and unfortuanlly I don't have a development cluster to try this on.

Does anyone have experience with removing Analysis Services from a failover cluster environment?


- Eric
