Unable to configure conversion to MSCS on nodeB


Hello everybody,

I am trying to install SAP 5.0 in windows clustering environment with SQL 2005 database, the normal installaton and configure MSCS node A done (As per installation guide)

But I have problem that when I check the SAP-R/3 PRD resource, Possible owner

only nodeA (first node) is listed. when I click on Available node their

is only one node nodeA available, second node i.e nodeB is not display

when I am trying to add manually second node by command

cluster res "SAP-R/3 PRD" /addowner:nodeB

it gives the error

System error 5079 has occurred (0x000013d7).

The specified node does not support a resource of this type. This may be due to

version inconsistencies or due to the absence of the resource DLL on this node.

so I unable to configure MSCS on Node B. I am unable to move the all group on second node and start the SAPinst on that node(i.e.on nodeB.

When I try to configure MSCS node B, means run the SAPinst on nodeA it gives the error

WARNING 2009-02-15 20:00:10

Error 2 (The system cannot find the file specified.) in execution of a 'RegOpenKeyEx' function, line (67), with parameter (S-1-5-21-596088387-3605492988-2306553309-1139\Environment).

sapb' host.

then I log on nodeA by <sid>adm and try to install but it give the same error(by SAP note)

So please suggest me

1. How to add nodeB in owner?

2. How to conversion phase of MSCS installation configures the database and SAP instance ineract with the MSCS software and use the failover functionality on node B
