"Setup Failed to Start on the Remote Machine. Check the Task Scheduler Event Log on the Remote Machine." Error While Installing Microsoft Sql Server 2005 in Failover Cluster

Last few days I was installing failover cluster in MsSql 2005 and whille installing it I got this error and installation wouldn’t continue.

In error logs there is a message:

Fix for this error is simple. Log out any users on another node in cluster and that’s it. So simple.
