    Hi ,
    I am looking some information regarding scenario in SQL 2005 where project team wants 3 servers running as active and one extra server will work as passive or backup server so just wondering if that at all possible ? if yes any pointer will be great also just wondering if it is possible and two active nodes get down simulatenously then how it will be taken care of.

    Yes it is possible. If 2 active nodes are down, you end up with 2 instances running on 1 node (which will be slower, but still better than complete downtime!).

    In this case you have to take action for such limited availability of nodes, moreover see whether application can work out or not.
