SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 failover cluster.
  • You install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on the nodes of the failover cluster. The FILESTREAM feature is not configured during the installation.
  • You use some Veritas Storage Foundation mount points that are of the Volume Manager Disk Group type as cluster resources.
  • You try to perform post-setup configuration of the FILESTREAM feature by using SQL Server Configuration Manager.
In this scenario, an error message that resembles the following is displayed under the last check box of the FILESTREAM configuration dialog box:
A previous filestream configuration attempt was incomplete. Filestream may be in an inconsistent state until re-configured.
Additionally, an access violation exception of the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Provider service that resembles the following is logged in the Application log:
Faulting application wmiprvse.exe, version 6.0.6002.18005, time stamp 0x49e0274f, faulting module CLUSAPI.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791acce, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x000000000001df73, process id 0xca4, application start time 0x01cb28f4bcfeed65.
Note This issue may also occur when you perform a post setup configuration of the FILESTREAM feature in a failover cluster by using SQL Server Configuration Manager in SQL Server 2008 R2.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the SQL Server 2008 and the SQL Server 2008 R2 post-setup code that enables the FILESTREAM feature assumes that the cluster resources are physical disks. However, the post-setup code does not involve mount points. Therefore, the Cluster API encounters an access violation.
