I have been tasked with installing an Active/Active SQL 2005 Cluster in Win2008. I know, I should go with SQL 2008 but I have been over ruled due to apps not being SQL 2008 compliant. I have never installed Active/Active on or SQL 2005 in a cluster. Are there any gotchas that I should be prepared for? I have heard that the local C drive needs to have much more space in SQL 2005 than in 2000. We are thinking of having 4 SQL instances. Any suggestions on the size of the C drive? We have heard that Win2008 has a much bigger footprint than Win2003 too.
