Hi Folks,

    We are running SQL Server 2005 Cluster enviornment with single
instance-two node configuration.  Presently both servers have 4GB ram, with
3.4Ghz 32-bit Quad-Core CPUs on both.

    Our Network guys are installing Microsoft OCS 2007, and are demanding
SQL DBA team install named instance on the cluster enviornment.  I have
turned them down so far, but wanted to ask everyons opinion on here.

Thanks!
