Can someone direct me to a Microsoft article or possibly a SQL Server Central article showing the suggested process to install a Windows Service Pack on a multi node SQL Server Cluster? Our three node cluster is running Windows Server 2008 SP1 with 8 SQL Server 2008 Instances, and we'd like to install Win Server 2008 SP2 on each Node. Also MS DTC is on Node 1.

We have 4 Instances active on Node 1, 4 instances on Node 2, and Node 3 is passive only. My thought is to Pause Node 3 and install SP3, when it's back up move what's on Node 1 to Node 3 then pause the cluster on Node 1 and update it. And finally do the same thing to Node 2 moving what it has back to Node 1.

Is this feasible or is there some other way to do this?

Thanks.

Since you're talking about Windows service packs rather than upgrading SQL server then I'd suggest following this KB from Microsoft which details how you go through upgrading a cluster with service packs for various versions of Windows.
