2016 Server CORE. Add node to SQL server 2019 Failover Cluster.
Steps were taken: Added the server to the Failover Cluster
I found this page, Install SQL Server from the Command Prompt which is helpful. However, I am not able to complete the installation without error.
This is code I wrote, with the help of the link above.
.\Setup.exe /QS /Action=AddNode /IACCEPTSQLSERVERLICENSETERMS=true /INSTANCENAME=SQL2019 /FAILOVERCLUSTERNETWORKNAME=YouClusterName /FAILOVERCLUSTERIPADDRESSES=192.168.2.36 /CONFIRMIPDEPENDENCYCHANGE=0 /AGTSVCACCOUNT=domainName\sqlagent /AGTSVCPASSWORD=******** /SQLSVCACCOUNT=domainName\sqlengine /SQLSVCPASSWORD=******** /PID=22222-00000-00000-00000-00000
This is the error I receive when it is "Running Rules for Feature Installation"
The following error occurred: You have selected a feature that is not supported for Windows Server Core. The supported features on Windows Server Core are: Database Engine Services, SQL Server Replication, Full-Text and Semantix Extractions for Search, Analysis Services, Client Tools Connectivity, Integration Services, and SQL Client Connectivity SDK.
Error result: -2067922334
Result facility code: 1214
Result error code: 61
Any assistance on this would be great.
I found this on the error above. However, it is for 2012, not 2019: You cannot install a SQL Server 2012 Cluster Instance
I went through the installation process on a test server, to see what Features it picks up on, during the installation. And on the Cluster Node Configuration - Page.
Features = SQLEngine, SQLEngine\Replication, SQLEngine\FullText, SQLEngine\DQ
It has the features being installed that Core requires, and nothing more.
So, why is it yelling, You have selected a feature that is not supported for Windows Server Core ???
