is this tool also clusteraware?

does it also allow to install named instances on cluster?

FineBuild 2.0 and above should support a cluster install for defalt and named instances, but this area of FineBuild has not had much testing.  If you have problems let me know so I can fix them.

If you have not used FineBuild before I recommend you start with a Workstation install to get familiar with the FineBuild process, befoer doing a cluster install.

The old version V1.1.0 of FineBuild for SQL 2005 does not support cluster installs, but the V2 versions for SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 do.

FineBuild 2.1.1 for SQL 2008 now supports clustered installs.  It will create the DTS cluster (on request), then install all the other SQL components on all nodes. There is still some more work to do for the post-cluster install configuration of SSIS and SSRS, and this will follow as the SQL2008 R2 and SQL 2005 FineBuild are upgraded to install clusters.
