I have a machine where I am attempting to upgrade from Sql2005 Express to Sql2008r2 Express, but it is failing on the Rules check.
Rule Check Result
Rule "Not clustered or the cluster service is up and online." failed.
The machine is clustered, but the cluster is not online or cannot be accessed from one of its nodes. To continue determine why the cluster is not online and rerun setup instead of rerunning the rule since the rule can no longer detect a cluster environment correctly.
I know the machine is not part of a Cluster, and it's actually running on Windows Xp(POSReady 2009). Is there some registry keys or files that are somehow fooling the Sql2008r2 Express installer to believe that it's in a Cluster. That I can delete or change?
