    I like to setup a SQL 2008 two node cluster on Windows 2008 R2. I prefer to
    have SQL binaries installed on a shared drive (say a LUN on SAN) so that I
    need just one SQL license for this project. Here are my queries:

    1. Can SQL binaries be installed on a shared drive for failover? I am not
    talking about data or log as I have an existing SQL cluster with data and log
    on shared volumes.
    2. Why can't we install SQL on shared volumes?

    Thanks in advance
