    Unanswered: Service Pack 3 upgrade on Win CLuster

    SQL Server 2005 - 64bit, active - passive cluster
    After I upgrade the primary node instance to SP3, do I have to apply the service pack to the failover node, or is the installer cluster aware, and does that for you. I've read both to be true, so I'm not sure which is true. I've rebooted the passive node, but don't know if I should reboot the active, and let it failover without assuring the secondary is at SP3 too.

    If I recall correctly, the setup takes care of it for you.

    The easiest way to double check would be to take a look at the bin directory on each machine and see if the version numbers for sqlserver.exe match.
