I'm adding a node to a SQL Server failover cluster. The installer throws the error "Addnode: Remote registry call failed. Unable to retrieve primary node Filestream settings" when adding node two

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 Setup

The following error has occurred:

Addnode: Remote registry call failed. Unable to retrieve primary node Filestream settings

The os on the servers are Windows 2012. Any advice where to start looking?

Is the remote registry service configured and started on both cluster members? –  pauska Sep 17 '13 at 6:16
To add to what @pauska mentioned I would check if node two has permission to access node 1 registry. –  hyp Sep 17 '13 at 7:48

It was a combination of missconfigurations. First of all, thanks @pauska. I had to enable the Remote Registry Service but also enable the Filestream on my first node.
