Cluster Uninstall Failure

Postby jward2207 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:48 pm


I am trying to uninstall SQL Backup 7 from two clustered Windows Server 2008 servers but am getting "Runtime Error (at 126:162): A cluster resource failed" when trying to uninstall the server components from either server.

Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening?

Hi James

Thank you for your forum post and sorry that you have encountered a problem. I personally have never seen this particular install/uninstall error.

I recommend that you either disable or completely remove the SQL Backup resource in the Cluster Manager prior to attempting the uninstall.

Once the resource is disabled or removed, log-in to each node in turn. Ensure that there is not a SQL Backup task in progress. From the Control Panel ->Programs ->Programs and Features ->Locate the entry for SQL Backup 7 (Server Components) or for a named instance SQL Backup 7 - <instance name> (Server Components) and select the option to remove.

Many Thanks
