Adding in 2nd cluster node - Windows 2008 R2

I currently have a 1 node cluster already built.  I just re-installed the OS/patched it fully except SP1 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  Mind you, node 1 does not have any Windows updates performed at all.  I will do that before adding node 2 into the mix.

My main concern is, I pre-installed all the roles/features before adding to the pre-existing cluster.  Will this be an issue?  Should I be installing roles/features after adding node 2 into the cluster or doing before is okay?

Depending on which roles you are talking about.
Cluster roles should be added once the cluster is joined.

this role installed was IIS but i noticed nothing that would pertain to a cluster. we would not cluster any IIS resources.  this cluster is for sql 2008.  so i should be good.  i was more worried about the features installed.
