On a SQL 2005 Cluster I am trying to open up the Surface Area Configuration while logged onto the server via the Virtual server name. As I open it I get this message but I AM connected via that not by the physical server. What am I missing here? Win2003 SQL 2005 SP3


TITLE: Surface Area Configuration ------------------------------ You cannot configure surface area of clustered services by connecting to a computer name. Connect to the virtual server to configure clustered services. (SQLSAC)

Someone on another forum had the answer


You need to tell SAC manager by clicking the 'change computer' option and specifying the virtual server name. Currently it will read something like 'Configure surface area for localhost'. Change this to be the virtual server name!
