I have a 2 node active-passive sql cluster in Windows 2008 R2. One of the servers is a VM (vmware esxi 5.5) and the other is a physical server. The physical server is being retired and we have created its replacement in vmware.
I've never replaced a node in a cluster so I'm a bit worried about the steps necessary to do this without causing problems. The application running on this cluster is the most visible and critical to our organization so I can't make mistakes.
Does anyone have a step-by-step instruction of how to replace a sql cluster node in a 2 node cluster?
My thought was to add the new server to the cluster and then just remove the old node but I'm not sure if that is the best way to do this. I'm very new to working with clusters so I wanted to get some advice before proceeding.
