    If I install SQL 2008 on a W2K8 or W2K3 R2 cluster, can the individual
    (non-primary) instances run as users in different child domains of the parent
    domain?

    What if the cluster is in a trusted forest? Can the instances run as users
    in different trusted domains in different trusted forests?

    Example:
    Management domain 'owns' the cluster and the first instance of SQL (for
    management purposes).
    Domain A with application needs to be SA or equivalent domain user for a SQL
    instance to run its application data.
    Domain B with application needs to be SA or equivalent domain user for a SQL
    instance to run its application data.

    Do Domain A and Domain B need to be child domains of Management?
    Can they be in different forests with appropriate forest to forest
    transitive trusts?

    Thank you for any insight you have.
