Error: Setup Support Rules failed with warning Network Error Binding Order while installing SQL Server 2008 Cluster

When you install a SQL 2008 cluster you can encounter above error “Setup Support Rule Failed” with warning Network binding error. You cannot move forward without passing this rule. When you check the cluster validation report you can found the below mention error

Error:

Network interfaces ServerName-Node1 – BackupLan and Servername-Node2  BackupLan are on the same cluster network, yet either address xxx.xx.xx.xx is not reachable from xxx.xx.xx.xxx or the ping latency is greater than the maximum allowed 500 milliseconds.

Network interfaces ServerName-Node1- BackupLan and Servername-Node2  – BackupLan are on the same cluster network, yet either address xxx.xx.xx.xx is not reachable from xxx.xx.xx.xx or the ping latency is greater than the maximum allowed 500 milliseconds.

Cause: The main root cause here is that during the Cluster Validation the connection between the 2 Backup LAN’s connections is not routable hence the cluster is not able to ping from one Backup LAN NIC to the other Backup LAN NIC and throws above error.

Resolution: Temporarily disable the Back LAN network connections on both nodes and proceed with the installation & then enable them again on both nodes
