I am trying to add a new node in failover cluster (windows 2008 -R2), when i try to run the validate wizard, it fails with the following error.
Validate Software Update Levels Validate that all tested servers have the same software updates installed. Validating that all servers have the same software updates... Software Updates missing on sqlnode2.contoso.com All software updates present Software Updates missing on 'sqlnode2.contoso.com': Hotfix Id Description KB2617657 Security Update KB2616676 Update KB2586448 Security Update KB2570791 Update KB2567053 Security Update KB2563894 Security Update KB2562937 Security Update KB2530548 Security Update KB2508272 Security Update
I run several time "windows update" but the result is "Windows is up to date" no new updates are found. i have restarted the service and server also.

Cluster validation should not be failing...this should be a warning message so it would still be considered a validated cluster unless some other tests are failing.
The Cluster Validation tool cannot detect cumulative updates, rollup hotfixes, etc so it doesn't know that these specific hotfixes are already applied in some other update that is on the system. As long as your boxes are to date with the latest patches, this warning can be ignored.

during installation of passive node, sql fails to install.
what i did, i removed that updates on Active node, and now i install the sql on passive node.

Does Microsoft officially support this?
I mean, in case of a "support case with Microsoft", if the cluster validation states a difference in patch leve.
