    Hi All

    I have SQL server installed on cluster (Active/Passive). I would like to restart SQL service on active server. Is there any problem to do so?

    Thanks in advance.

    As long as you do it via cluster administrator you're fine.

    You find cluster administrator in the start menu or use Start Menu -> Run -> type cluadmin.

    Right click on the SQL Server resource and select "take offline". To start it use "bring online".

    Thank you very much for your reply,

    Actually I was little bit confused about offline and online.

    Offline/Online = stop/start
