Installation on Windows 2012 Cluster - Registry replication

Postby neonsun » Thu Apr 25, 2013 1:35 pm

Hi,

We are installing SQL Backup 7 on a Windows Server 2012/SQL Server 2012 cluster and are following the manual installation method, which is working fine except for the part where the cluster resource for the service must be configured.

It seems Microsoft dropped the ball a bit in Windows 2012 and forgot to include the tab for setting up registry replication in cluster manager for generic services (oops!) and since the cluster.exe tool is no longer included either, we have to resort to using Powershell cluster cmdlets to set up the registry replication, according to a Technet article we found: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/For ... 1dc88d290/

Would you happen to have any examples/templates for this on hand that we can use to get it set up correctly for the SQL Backup agent service? :)

Thanks,
Geir W

With some more help from Technet (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 47255.aspx) I found the following seems to work:


Add-ClusterCheckpoint -ResourceName "SQL Backup Agent-<INSTANCE>" -RegistryCheckpoint "SOFTWARE\\Red Gate\\SQL Backup\\BackupSettings\\<INSTANCE>"

Add-ClusterCheckpoint -ResourceName "SQL Backup Agent-<INSTANCE>" -RegistryCheckpoint "SOFTWARE\\Red Gate\\SQL Backup\\BackupSettingsGlobal\\<INSTANCE>"

Thanks,
