Last week I was working with Marcelo Fernandes (SQL Server MVP) and he asked for help to try to find a solution for the issue below.


You can get more details and screen shoots visiting Marcelo's blog post.

 

Problem

During SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 over a Windows Server 2012 the Cluster Service Verification Failed.

Cause

The MsClus.dll library is disabled by default in Windows Server 2012, and installing "Failover Cluster Automation Server" re-enable it.

Solution

Install Cluster Automation Server (add-windowsfeature RSAT-Clustering-Automation Server)

Reference: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2681562  (Known SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 setup issues)

 

After this installation in all Cluster Nodes you can re-start SQL Server 2008 installation and the Cluster Service Verification will pass.
