Hi Everyone,

 

I am facing an issue while adding the features to our existing SQL 2016 Cluster server.

 

Rule "Existing clustered or cluster-prepared instance" failed.

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

 

Please advise.

Regards

 

Sundesa

Hello,
And which feature do you want to add to the SQL Server instance?
See Microsoft Docs Add Features to an Instance of SQL Server (Setup)
for more details.
