SQL Server 2000

  This topic applies only to SQL Server 2000 (64-bit).

The following syntax shows the arguments and properties used by the setup command line for a failover cluster. For complete documentation of the arguments and properties, see SQL Server 2000 (64-bit) Setup Command.

To install Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 (64-bit) on a failover cluster, you must run the setup command line on the cluster. The following property settings (except for INSTANCENAME, which is optional) are required.

Property Comment
VS Specifies the name of the virtual server. The name can have up to 15 characters and must adhere the same rules as any computer name.
IP Specifies the IP addresses. Use one entry for each network adapter. The format is "IP address,network", for example IP=", Local Area Connector 2".
NODELIST Specifies the nodes for your virtual server. The nodes must exist in the cluster. To add a node to the virtual server definition, execute the original command line with the new node added to the NODELIST property setting. To remove a node, execute the original command line with the node removed from the property setting. To uninstall a cluster, run the command line with an empty NODELIST (or omit it completely).
Specifies an account used to spawn processes to remote nodes during setup only. This user account must be in the administrators group on all nodes that are to be included in the virtual server. This account must be defined.
INSTALLSQLDIR The drive letter in the path must exist on all nodes in the cluster.
INSTALLSQLDATADIR Specifies a location on a shared disk that is a member of the cluster group.
INSTANCENAME Optional. If you would like to have an instance name for the virtual server, then include this property setting.
