    If I install a two node cluster with the MS SQL 2005 default instance on node 1 and a named instance on node 2 is this considered and active/active configuration? Both nodes will have active databases.

    Thanks.

    For each instance you should have the SQL Server and the SQL Server Agent services on every node. So, for an active/active installation that means two SQLSERVER services, and two SQLSERVERAGENT services in service manager. If not, you haven't got an active/active cluster.

    Get a clarification for your doubts fromhttp://www.sql-server-performance.com/bm_cluster_sql_server_2005.asp link
