Not sure what you mean by "clustered two db2 instances". You can cluster
one instance using MSCS.

I'll bet the OP was asking if you have have 2 instances set up for
failover under MSCS. So, for example, both servers in a cluster are
active and acting as a failover for each other (as opposed to having
1 server just sitting idle).
And, as someone else pointed out, the answer to that question is yes.
Each instance appears as a separate group in the cluster adminisrator.

I don't believe DB2 supports this using MSCS if you mean active-active
.... same database ... without 3rd party sw. Now if the two databases are
different, that is a different story ... you can accomplish this using MSCS.
