- You start the implementation of a SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2012 Failover Cluster installation.
- You add a node to the failover cluster.
- You install the shared components for the node to a nondefault location. For example, you install the shared components in the following path if the operating system is installed on the drive C: D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
- You add a second node to the failover cluster.
- The installation ignores the nondefault location and installs the shared components to the default location.
- When a failover occurs in the cluster, the log shipping fails, and then you receive an error message that resembles the following: Job Step: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\sqllogship.exe" -Backup 11988AF6-DCC1-4785-90A5-978568E6C562 -server GVS10001 Message after failover on the copy job Message Executed as user: DOMAIN1\SQLService. The process could not be created for step 1 of job 0x3329AA27908BB548B5D78A9EA3D6A3DD (reason: The system cannot find the file specified). The step failed.
- If the cluster has a PowerShell job when the failover occurs, or if you have a clear job that is created by SQL Server Policy Based Management (PBM) when the failover occurs, the job fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Unable to start execution of step 3 (reason: The PowerShell subsystem failed to load [see the SQLAGENT.OUT file for details]; The job has been suspended). The step failed. Log SQL Server Agent Message  Subsystem 'PowerShell' could not be loaded (reason: The system cannot find the path specified)
- When you failover a job that references the Bcp.exe component, the job fails.
- SQL Powershell (Sqlps.exe)
- Log shipping executable (SQLLogship.exe)
- Bcp.exe and other components
Note A clear job that is created by PBM has a PowerShell step. Therefore, the job references the Sqlps.exe component.
