Running an application on the passive node?

I have an SQL Cluster with a DB-Active and DB-Passive node. DB-Active is running at around 30% capacity. On my dev server I can run the DB and application without a problem.
So my questions are can I run the application on the passive node?
If yes then do I need to be cautious of anything?

I know that if the DB-Active fails then it flips to DB-Passive and it should continue to process.
Also that if DB-Passive fails, then my application cannot be run until it is back online.

the question is in how far does it depend from the db/cluster?
n2dwebprogrammerAuthor Commented:
It is an application that runs automatically based upon triggers in the DB. When new input is received from a client, then it processes the data and writes the results to the DB.
The App server then picks up these results and creates a report for the client.

So the answer is still a "Yes"?
