First of all, if i could offer more points, I would....sorry
I've spent a long time trying to figure this out...
We are trying to cluster two Server 2003 machines, which will eventually be clustered SQL server(s).
As of now, our domain looks like this:
PDC/BDC: Windows 2000 Adv. Server SP4
Almost all workstations are 2000 Pro (roughly 30); about 5 are XP Pro.
We got new IBM servers and have been trying to get them clustered for some times now. I think i have gone through every step available on the internet to get these configured correctly. I did a fresh install of Server 03 yesterday, both machines are matched to the T in hardware and software.
Every time I try to cluster them I get the error:
"A cluster cannot be created with the specified cluster name because that cluster name is already in use. Specify a different name for the cluster."
I've gone through the DNS servers to make sure there was nothing at all in there. I have flushed it, scavenged it, and cleared the cache, stopped it and started it.
I'm out of options, Google and M$ has provided me with good help but nothing that worked.
any other suggestions?
