clusters use shared disks, there is only one copy of all the databases, connect to them using the virtual sql instance name (thats why its called virtual, it sits above the physical nodes)
Have you updated the .ini file to the virtual name? You will still be able to connect to SSIS using the node name of the live node, but you should be using the virtual name.
Leave the .ini where it is and on each node with exact same settings.
I get that databases are shared but what about setting up the sql agent job- do i set up in each instance? Also in the ini file, i understand that you replace
<ServerName>virtual instance name </ServerName>
What about <Name>MSDB</Name> ? I see that some articles leave it as is where as some places have it as <Name>Instance1_MSDB</Name> ??
