Clustering two instances on one server

klh
Hi group,

We are attempting to install an MS clustered failover environment
(mutual-takeover) for Windows 2003 and DB2 V8. All of our instances
are non-partitioned. We have both local databases and db2 connect
pass through traffic (to z/os). I want our db2 connect traffic to go
through a separate instance so that it doesn't take away resources
from the local databases. The configuration I would like to have is:

Server1
Local_Instance1 - For local databases
Disk1a
Disk1b
DB2_Connect_Instance - For remote databases

Server2
Local_Instance2 - For local databases
Disk2a
Disk2b

I've not seen examples of this in the "clustering" redbook.

My questions are:
1) Is it possible to have two clustered instances on the same server?
2) If it is possible, then do I have to have disk resources assigned
to the DB2_Connect_Instance since I'm not going to define local
databases to that instance.
3) Should the DB2_Connect_Instance failover, if server1 goes down,
like I'm thinking it should?

I appreciate your responses,
klh
