Can an SQL 2008 Instance Directory be installed on a Cluster Share

  1. Can an SQL 2008 Instance Directory be installed on a Cluster Share

    Hi,
    Can I configure a SQL 2008 Instance Directory on a Cluster Drive? I would
    like to put the system DBs on a cluster drive. But when I select a cluster
    drive, it give me an error:
    ------------------------------
    Instance directory (or command line option /INSTANCEDIR) value for a cluster
    installation cannot be a directory on shared drive.
    ------------------------
    Any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks,
    Yuhong

    Never mind. The root directory has to be on the local drive on each node. The
    will be options to specify data and log directories later on in the
    installation process .
    Thanks!
