    <SPAN><FONT face=verdana,geneva>&nbsp;</FONT> <P><FONT face=verdana,geneva>Yes. This is supported as SQL Server 2005 and 2000 can be installed side by side on a cluster successfully.&nbsp;With regard to achieve this there&nbsp;should be more care on choosing the shared- disks &amp; IP addresses with&nbsp;sensible resourced hardware.</FONT></P><P><FONT face=verdana,geneva>1. Separate Physically-shared disks for SQL Server 2005 and 2000.</FONT></P><P><FONT face=verdana,geneva>2. Separate IP addresses for SQL Server 2005 and 2000.</FONT></P><P><FONT face=verdana,geneva>3. If you install SQL Server 2000 first, when install 2005, please do not select the same instance name for 2005. Otherwise, setup will prompt for upgrading 2000 to 2005. </FONT></P></SPAN><img src="http://sqlserver-qa.net/aggbug.aspx?PostID=1353" width="1" height="1">
