FIX: PolyBase feature doesn't install when you add a node to a SQL Server 2016 failover cluster

Symptoms

When you add a node to an existing SQL Server 2016 failover cluster, you can’t install the PolyBase feature. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
The folder <installation path> does not exist. The folder is expected to exist to set permission on it.


Resolution

The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server:
Recommendation: Install the latest cumulative update for SQL Server

Workaround

To work around this issue, perform a slipstream install with SQL Server 2016 Cumulative Update 1.

For example, assume that you save the setup files for SQL Server 2016 RTM and Cumulative Update 1 in the following directories:
  • C:\Setup\SQL2016RTM
  • C:\Setup\SQL2016CU1
To perform a slipstream install, you can run a command from the RTM folder that resembles the following:
C:\Setup\SQL2016RTM>.\setup.exe /ACTION=ADDNODE /UpdateEnabled=True /UpdateSource="C:\Setup\SQL2016CU1" 
For more information, see How to slipstream SQL Server 2008 R2 and a SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
