SQL Server 2005 failover cluster Setup might fail when installing from CD


During another SQL 2005 cluster installation we experienced the error "Remote Setup Failed" error after I inserted CD 2. Last time I used a DVD and I didn't experienced the same error.

The resolution is very simple: Copy installation files from both CDs to the same directory on the active cluster node or network share.

For example,
c:
cd\
md SQLENT
Copy both CDs to the SQLENT directory:
\SQLENT\Servers
\SQLENT\Tools


Note:
This is not an issue with DVD installations
