the following blog is more to remind my self on a mistake I do very often. 😉
When I install a SQL Failover Cluster and a High Available Instance on a cluster shared volume, I get the error “Updating permission setting for folder ‘ ‘ failed”.
There are different posts to solve the issue more or less complex.
In my case the solution was pretty easy. I mostly forget to create a sub directory for SQL Databases and Files on the cluster shared volume. So as example:
C.\ClusterStorage\SQL-Backup\ <- will give you the error
C:\ClusterStorage\SQL-Backup\Files\ <- will work fine
So easy solution for the error, create a subfolder and install use that path during installation.
