Sometimes when his/her database infrastructure needs to change, a DBA may need to install an extra SQL Server Instance on his/her production cluster. The only problem with installing a new SQL Server instance on a production cluster is that very often the cluster nodes must be rebooted. To install a new instance it is necessary to plan it after working hours. If you are not familiar with installing a new SQL Server instance on an existing SQL Cluster I have found a great link for you. The author Brad McGehee is the director of DBA education for Red Gate Software and a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. You can find the link here .
Installing an extra SQL Server 2005 instance on a cluster
I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 1975. When I was 17 I moved to Curacao where I lived 10 years and then move to The Hague, The Netherlands. I speak 4 languages (Dutch, English, Papiamento and Spanish). I'm a Systems Engineer graduated from The Hague University (http://www.thehagueuniversity.com/). I have been working in IT for over 15 years. Since November 2014 I started www.cenlinea.com a webportal were the focus is to make learning more fun. At Cenlinea we are currently promoting PLAYDIOM a new methodology to learn English. While currently working part-time time at Cenlinea, I am also working as Senior Princiapal Consultant at www.ccgroep.com which helps me to keep up to date with Microsoft SQL Server, which I consider to be one of my favorite things in life as it has changed my life in many ways.
