UPDATED: Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering

Back in January, I wrote a blog article about some issues I faced when installing SQL Server 2012 failover cluster instances on Windows Server 2012, it’s available here.

Since then, I’ve seen some of the same error messages re-occur in other situations and they always made me think they were more related to Active Directory more than SQL Server.

The good news is that some of these Windows errors now have hotfixes for them, meaning they’re acknowledged as being Windows Server 2012 related, rather than issues with SQL Server.

Microsoft now have a “Recommended hotfixes and updates for Windows Server 2012-based Failover Clusters” web page that is getting regularly updated.

The link to the page is here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2784261

There are currently six hotfixes listed, of which two are related to some of the errors I wrote about in January.
