    Hi all,

    I have a 2-node active/active SQL 2005 SP2 cluster running on 2 Windows
    Server 2003 x64 edition boxes. I am considering adding a 3rd node on Windows
    2008 x64 with SQL 2008. Is this possible?

    TIA!

  2. No. You cannot mix Windows 2003 and WIndows 2008 in the same cluster. You
    also cannot do an in-place cluster upgrade from Windows 2003 to WIndows
    2008.

    What about SQL 2008 on Windows 2003 x64 added as a 3rd node to the cluster?

  4. Yes. You can have a three node cluster in Windows 2003 and SQL 2008.

    You can mix and match SQL versions within a cluster.
