Setup Network Adaptors

FineBuild can set up Network Adaptors names to assist in SQL Server Cluster troubleshooting.

This processing is only performed for SQL Server Clusters.

SQL FineBuild will rename network adaptors as seen in Windows to match the cluster network names. Although this renaming is largely cosmetic, if there is a problem with networking on a SQL Server cluster, it can help to see the same names used in all tools used for troubleshooting.

FineBuild Network Adaptors Processing

Processing of Network Adaptors relates to Process Id 1DB in the FineBuild1Preparation script, and is always performed.

FineBuild also uses the following parameters to help configure MSDTC Cluster:
Parameter Default Description
/NetNameSource: CLUSTER Source of master name for Network Adaptors: (blank) = Use server names, CLUSTER = Use cluster names


Manual Setup Network Adaptors Processing

The following steps show what you would have to do to setup Network Adaptors manually. FineBuild does all of this work for you automatically. The example shows how to set server network names to match those used by the cluster.

1) Open the Registry Editor by Start -> Run and type regedit
2) Navigate to HKLM\Cluster\Networks
Cannot resolve image macro, invalid image name or id.
3) Examine each resource in turn, and note the network GUID and the Network Name
Cannot resolve image macro, invalid image name or id.
4) Navigate to HKLM\Cluster\NetworkInterfaces
Cannot resolve image macro, invalid image name or id.
5) Examine each interface in turn.
Find the interface where the \Network value matches the network GUID and the \Node value matches the current node. Make a note of the Adaptor Name held in the \Name value.
Cannot resolve image macro, invalid image name or id.
6) Run the following command in a CMD window to rename the adaptor
Replace Adaptor Name and Network Name with the values found above

7) Repeat steps 3) to 6) for all cluster network names.
