When trying to install the HPC 2008 Pack, you may get a failure during the SQL installation of the HPC Pack setup with the following error message:
If you look in the Application Event Log, you would find the event:
This issue can occur when the date/time have been set incorrectly. The incorrect date/time could potentially be caused by a weak battery on the motherboard that holds the CMOS/BIOS settings and causes it to lose the date/time.
The troubleshooting steps taken to confirm this issue, was to modify the SYSDBUPG.SQL file to print out more information. In the previous situation, the server had the year set for 2002. So the stored procedure will get "set bNewProc = 1". As a result the SQL setup installation believes it is a new stored procedure, then makes a call to Exec sp_AddFunctionalUnitToComponent which is when the failure occurs with the error message.
Once the date/time were corrected to the current year on the server that SQL was installed on, the HPC 2008 Pack installation would install the appropriate SQL version successfully
