We currently have a 2 node cluster with 2 instances of SQL 2005 that normally run in an active active config. One of our developers wants to upgrade one of the instances to 2008 while the other instance will have to stay as 2005 as the application that runs is not compatible.

Is this a supported and recommended configuration?

Any thing we should do to make the upgrade process run smoothly?

yes

there is nothing, apart from the normal stuff -- 2 instances on a single machine -- configuration that "changes".
the 2 sql server instances are distinct.

>Any thing we should do to make the upgrade process run smoothly?
hopefully, the developer has tested that the upgrade does not break the applications?! ...

apart from that, note all the system parameters of the instance to upgrade, to ensure they are still applied afterwards.
