    The management studio didn't get installed on our new two-node cluster.
    When I try to do 'add feature', via 'new standalone or add features', it
    fails on finding the cluster:

    Checks if the selected instance name is already used by an existing
    cluster-prepared or clustered instance on any cluster node.

    Failed - The instance selected for installation is already installed and
    clustered on computer xxxxx1. To continue, select a different instance to

    So, how do I add new features to the cluster?

    OK found the solve on this - run the add but choose 'new instance', not the
    existing cluster.
    Is this a bug I wonder?

  3. Not really.

    Management tools are not associated with a particular instance. They are

  4. Geoff (as always) has it. You can't install things to a virtual server as it
    doesn't really exist, so applications like the admin tools and other
    management tools really run on a particular server.
