And equally important - is it recommended?

Has anyone else out there successfully clustered SQL 2000/2005 together?

I've seen stuff out there that says it works and other stuff that says it doesn't. I'm actually about to scrape up some hardware to try it out because the topic came up at work, just wanted some additional insight before making that plunge.

The end result we're after is to have an Active/Passive Windows 2003 cluster that has a SQL 2000 instance and a SQL 2005 instance on it...more to come as I explore this further.

Sure, you could have two separate instances running. It's the same idea as having two instances running on a standalone system. Of course both (all) nodes need to have the exact same configuration, service pack level for the instances, etc.

John - I haven't gotten around to this project yet but I'll be glad to document it once I do complete it.
