I've got a sql server 2008 R2 Clustered(active/passive) environment setup already. I'm trying to add a named instance to the existing clustered environment. Can anyone point me in the right direction of a step by step approach?

Thanks in advance

Do you want this new instance to also be clustered? Or will it be a stand alone instance on one of the boxes?

I am going to take that to mean you want it clustered.

The setup is the same as you did for the first cluster - now you are just creating a second cluster. Each cluster must have unique resources. So any resources in use by the first cluster cannot be reused for the second cluster.

Thanks Jason. I actually found a link that basically says what you are saying. Essentially the Named instance that I'm trying to install is its on separate cluster(i.e. which is very different then installing a named instance on a non clustered servers)
