SQL Server 2008 Add Cluster Node workarounds

I haven't installed/added SQL 2008 cluster node for so long, but just today I had to use 2 workarounds just to get it working. Whew

First workaround, Cluster Validation was good but SQL installer still complained

Setup /SkipRules=Cluster_VerifyForErrors /Action=AddNode

Second Workaround is actuall a MS Bug, where I had to comment out the pre-saved license key in the installer folder and entered it manually instead


Basically go to \x64 folder and modify the Defaultsetup.ini file to comment out the serial number (and paste it in during install)
