Hi Girish Jain,

I would to recommend you with these links with tools or utilities that may serve to work with your request. I think this will give you some important details in regards to how to install SQL clustering in Active/Active mode. You can review first the OS info about Microsoft Windows Cluster Services For Windows 2003 & Windows 2008.
Keepin' you in touch.

Here is article which gives step-by-steps instructions for installing a SQL Server 2005 instance in a cluster. The assumption for this example is that you will be installing this instance in a 2-node active/passive cluster. Even if you will be installing a 2-node active/active or a multi-node cluster, the steps in this section are virtually the same. The only real difference is that you will have to run SQL Server 2005 setup for every instance you want to install on the cluster, and you will have to specify a different logical drive on the shared array. Hope it may be of any use to you.
