Hi All

I need to add a new sql instance on the existing cluster, how do i go about?

The current setup of the cluster is Active\Active

2K8 OS Enterprise and 2K8 Enterprise SQL
256GB ram and disk allocation we using mount points

It's better to fail while trying, rather than fail without trying!!!

Just run the setup and install a new clustered instance.
It's not really different from installing the first instance.

Thx

Of course each new instance needs to have it's own cluster resource group, including IP-adress and shared disk. If you want to use another service account or the same as for the existing instance depends on your internal policy. I've seen companies there they use one account for all instances andothers have a different account for each instance.

What I meant to say in my first post is basically you have to follow the same steps as when you installed the first instance except for the fact that you have a diferent name and cluster group.

Complete the requirements for clustered instance and install it as you installed the first instance

New instance needs
* Dedicated IP address or SQL
* Dedicated ip address for msdtc
* Dedicated Virtual Name for SQL instance
* Dedicated Shared disks for Data and root directories
* Dedicated shared disk for msdtc

and preferable a new cluster group for controlled failover. This can be done in the installation wizard but I prefer to prepare in advance.

As far as I'm aware, you dont "need" another msdtc for the instance either but you can add one.

Yes. 'Preferably' additional msdtc and cluster group.
