We need to include both a SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2012 instance on the same Windows 2008 R2 cluster. Has anyone done this before? Caveats? Worked like a charm/don't touch with a 10 foot pole?

Thanks in advance for any input you can provide!

Have not done that myself, however I do run both on a single machine and have had zero issues. Off the top of my head I can't think of any issues that would come up. Just make sure you have your licensing correct, hate to get whacked on that..

I have a Windows 2012 cluster running a default instance of SQL 2012 and a named instance of SQL 2008R2 without issue. The named instance will eventually go away once vendors support SQL 2012.

Thanks for the input guys. Yeah we're moving this direction because some of our vendors aren't supporting SQL 2012 yet either.

I think as long as the two instances have their own disk resources you will be okay.
