Installation problem on SQL 2005 Cluster

After getting SQL Backup installed on a SQL Server 2005 Cluster (Active/Passive) we lost the Active server in the cluster. I now only have available what used to be the passive server.

When I add the server to SQL Backup I see an error regarding the SQL Backup DLL (see below). I'm not able to right-click on the server name to install SQL Backup server components.

Is there something else I need to do to remove/re-install the server component?


Could not load the DLL xp_sqlbackup.dll, or one of the DLLs it references. Reason: 126(The specified module could not be found.).

    Try installing the server components on your cluster node. The installer is named SQBServerSetup.exe, and is found in the folder where you installed the GUI. You'll probably need to register SQL Backup too.
