   I am trying to rebuild a SQL 2000 Cluster node in an active/passive configuration. On the active node I have SQL 2000 SP4 and it`s working fine.
   I have successfully installed SQL Server 2000 on the passive node and now I have hard times installing SP4.

I have tried to installed and I am prompted with some errors:
setup cannot verify/grant logon as service right to the SQL Server service logon account: 5000 => I followed, but couldn`t see any update.
   One more thing I`ve tried was to delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Need_sp_key" as found in other articles, but although after that the setup went a couple of stept further it failed again.

thx 4 help

From what I understand....the system was already up...running smoothly...then they added spk 2 to OS and the cluster "broke" *( dont know what that means because he rebuild)...Ok I am going to reinstall ...patch OS first..then add sql server 2000 and patch to serivce pack 4..Like I said I see errors in the events log but I dont know what happened...
Can you confirm that instructions and overall look of content in Cluster Administrator should resemble Windows 2000 build...I believe this is an active/passive configuraiton one primary and one secondary
