In today’s episode of provisioning, we encountered a slight hiccup with installing Quest LiteSpeed (arguably, the fastest most flexible SQL server backup and recovery solution.) It seems version 5 now has some built in support for sql 2008 clustering, however during the install, we encountered an error when trying to install extended stored procedures to the alternate node within the cluster. More details can be found here: http://sqlserver.quest.com/thread.jspa?threadID=6997&tstart=1 –
The provided solution, which essentially involved temporarily adding the machine account (AD computer object) of the alternate node to local admin group – enabled the Quest install to complete.
Hope this helps, should you encounter a similar issue.
