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.

Thanks

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.
