I have a three node cluster with three virtual sql server 2005 installed. Now
I want to take one node out of cluster to make a two node cluster. According
to the post of Daniel ("evicting a node") and other reading, we have to run
the setup again. My question are:
1. do I have to run the setup on all of thre virtual sql servers or just one?
2. after run the setup, will the sql server be changed to RTM? my server
have the sp2 right now.
3. If we can just evicting a node from cluster group without any database
issue, why do we need to run the setup again.
Daniel, can you post what you did in more detail for what you did.
thanks for anyone who cna help.
Regards,
Zack.
