    Hi All..
    First, we had a one node cluster running two production instances live.
    Now, we have added an another node to the cluster and have intalled the sqlserver 2005 in that node. While trying to install the SP2 and hotfix, i amn ot able to do it as we have the same instance live on another node and during installation the instance databases services is unchecked.
    Is there any way to install sP2 and hotfix to a new node on the cluster when the instance is running live on another node.

    Your question is confusing...
    You can't have the same name in the cluster and you can't have more than one default instance too...
    If you want to install the SP2, start the installation where the instance is running...
