7.1 Cluster Failover provoked on Passive Node upgrade
On the Active Node, everything went per usual:
Update the GUI
Navigate to the 32-bit Program Files and run the Service Update manually.
ALERT NAME: Cluster resource failed TIME: 6/27/2012 12:02:49 PM REASON: Cluster resource SQL Backup Agent in clustered service or application SQL Group failed. SEVERITY: CRITICALLittle did I know but I had just inadvertently provoked a cluster failover! EEK!
Highly unexpected. What did I do wrong? Or is there an issue with the installer on a Passive Node?
