I am trying to run SQBServerSetup on a new cluster that we are building. It is Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012.

I get the following error:

Failed to obtain the list of cluster nodes.

Any ideas?

    The current SQL Backup installer does not support installation on Windows 2012 clusters. We are fixing this issue, and a patch will be released once the issue has been satisfactorily resolved.

    My company uses SQL Backup 6 for all databases. We plan to add a new windows cluster for some of our servers, but have the same installation issues as the OP when installing SQL Backup 6 on a proof-of-concept system.

    Does any version of SQL Backup currently support windows clustering with SQL Server 2012 sp1 on Windows Server 2012 R2?

    Note: we don't plan to use availability groups.
