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
