Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 does not support the installation of a virtual server unless the installation is initiated from the console of the primary node of the virtual SQL Server being installed. Use of Microsoft Terminal Services or Remote Desktop is not supported, nor is use of a third party remote installation package for the installation of SQL Server 7.0 Failover Clustering.

When you set up a new installation of Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 Enterprise Edition for clustering, you must install applications in a specific order. This article describes the procedure you use to install multiple Microsoft products for use in a Microsoft cluster environment that includes Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), Microsoft Cluster Server, Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 Enterprise Edition, Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) 2.0, and optionally the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack.

Warning : Failure to install the applications in the order listed in this article may cause the software to fail on installation. It might also require you to reformat the disk and start the installation process over again.
