Hi there...

i had setup 1 pair of windows 2008 R2 cluster for SQl 2008 R2.
All installation ran sucessfull. but when i trying to upgrade SP1 or CU4, i will get this error
"There are no SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer "
I checked already the instance was installed. Im using default instance ID. the component selection view does not show the database engine components.

I followed steps from MSSQLTips.com, i didn't see the instance name appear beside the cluster group(MSSQLSERVER). at CMS console. it is normal..? SQL2008

MSSQLSERVER is the name of the default instance, so you probably did the install to a default instance instead of a named instance.

For the SQL upgrade, you'll need to do it on the node that is currently owning the cluster resource, did you check that you've started the install on the correct node?

You have 2 physical machines (nodes) in the cluster.

SQL Server is installed on a  cluster resource, not on the local drives (c:\program files\...) of the nodes.

So when you try to alter the SQL Server, you need to do the install of the SP and CU on the node that is currently running the SQL server instance.
