Please forgive me if my questions seems to naive but;

I am pretty familiar with Windows 2008 R2 Clustering. I have read articles, books and saw some videos. But in every one of them were about active/passive clustering.

I am installing SQL 2008 Cluster on two node and i want to make it active/active.

I know that if you configure clusters by default, it is going to be active/passive. Install the SQL 2008 on the first node and then add failover cluster node on the second.

But How can I configure Active / Active 2 node cluster on Windows 2008.

Can anybody send me a link or a book showing how to configure active/active clusters especially SQL 2008.

Thanks and regards
