Cluster Node Configuration

Use the Cluster Node Configuration page of the Microsoft SQL Server Installation Wizard to select the cluster nodes to include in your virtual server.

Selected Nodes

Move the selected node from the Available Nodes list to the Selected Nodes list, thereby adding the node to the virtual server definition.


Remove a selected node from the Selected Nodes list. This in turn removes the node from the virtual server.
