Good Day .. today i complete my SQL 2012 Server Lab installation, in part 1 of this article we have prepared our environment for the SQL installation, and as agreed we are going to use the Integrated Installation method.
Before we start the installation we need to install .Net framework 3.5 on both SQL nodes otherwise the installation will fail. to do that we will use Server Manager to add features.
Click to specify an alternate path for the .Net framework installation files.
Iam going to use a SQL 2012 SP1 media, Load your media and fire up the installation. Choose to install a New SQL Server failover cluster installation
Wait for the updates to be downloaded if any, and proceed with the install setup files step.
Now define the Logon account for each SQL Service, If you configure services to use domain accounts, Microsoft recommends that you configure service accounts individually to provide least privileges for each service, where SQL Server services are granted the minimum permissions they need to complete their tasks. Please review the Server Configuration – Service Accounts for Service Accounts explanation and requirements. for my lab i am using the same account for all services.
Confirm to start the installation , Setback and wait 🙂
Now let’s start adding the Second node to the SQL Cluster. Launch the SQL installation from the second node.
Click on Add node to a SQL Server failover cluster
