I've got a SQL 2008 active/active cluster, and i need to change the SQL service accounts for both instances. Can anyone provide step-by-step instructions on best way to do this?
Thanks in advance!

You just need to run SQL Server Configuration Manager and change the service accounts in there on the active node. It'll update the other node. For it to take effect, you'll need to restart the services.

Thanks for the response!
Normally for standalone instance in Configuration Manager it prompts to restart the service - is that expected for a clustered instance?

Yes. Any changes that require a restart will prompt.
