Bug #: 50003427 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.

SYMPTOMS

When you try to add a new node to a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services cluster or to a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services cluster that does not have the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Database Engine installed, the node is not added.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because an instance of SQL Server is not installed. When full-text search services are installed, but the SQL Server 2008 Database Engine is not installed, the installation of the full-text search services has a null SQL Server instance name.

Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.
