How to patch a SQL cluster?

    According to SP1 documentation patching the Active node in a cluster will automatically apply the SP1 patch to the Passive nodes. However, I found a MS document that says if you have management tools installed on the passive node, you must patch this node separately. Is this correct?
    Also, since Integration Services is not cluster-aware and therefore must be installed separately to the passive node(s), does SP1 need to be applied directly to the passive node(s) to patch Integration Services or is it automatically patched when I patch the Active node?
    Thanks, Dave

    You mean SP1 for SQL 2005, I believe its a old one and you might need to goto SP2 for upto date levels. BY any means I suggest to go through the README.HTML document.
