One Clustered SQL 2008 instance with multiple DB instances running with difference service pack ?

Hi All,

I'm wondering if this is possible ?

I have Clustered SQL Server 2008 Enterprise instance (plain install no SP or patch due to the SAP software not supporting it yet).

with the name PROD-SAP1 (default install no SP at all)

What I'd like to do is to create another separate DB instance with different IP address but patch it to SP3, does this can affect the other DB instance ?

With the name PROD-WebApp1 (fully patch to SP3)
