Recently I got an error while installing a second node in a SQL 2005 Cluster.

I installed from the customers’ installation eOpen ressources (with two CDs) and everything looked O.K.
While the installer tried to cleanup installation an misleading error occured.

“Can’t access cluster ressource”

I searched in many newsgroups, forums etc. but none of the answers matches my problem.
I asked my colleague Stefan L. and he remembered he had a similar problem.

Yesterday I got a problem while migrating a fileserver cluster from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2.

We wanted to migrate a big fileserver cluster with several volumes by mirroring the SAN LUNs, break the mirrors and mount them to the new Windows 2008 R2 fileserver.

After mounting the partitions to the new cluster we set up a new virtual fileserver and created some shares. With one partition/share we run in the following error:

After adding SYSTEM at root level with full access sharing of this partition was possible:



A few days ago a customer asked for changing permissions to show only free/busy information for some conferencing rooms. To meet this requirement I used the following PowerShell command:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -identity ressourcemailbox:\calendar -accessrights availabilityonly -user default

If configured like this, a default user can only see free/busy information for the room ressource. Attendees see the full description in their personal calendar.
