I am trying to install one SQL Server 2012 cluster with two nodes. I will also be enabling Remote Blob Storage (RBS) on server so I was wondering if I need to take something in account while installing cluster?
Or I can install cluster like we normally do and then later on enable RBS like we normally do? I mean does RBS require some special configuration/setting in SQL Fail Over Cluster?

Do you mean Remote Blob Store or remote blob storage using FILESTREAM? – KenWilson Sep 17 '13 at 21:41
I mean RBS using FILESTREAM. – Frank Martin Sep 22 '13 at 9:31

The setup is pretty strait forward. As the TechNet article below states you need to make sure the Windows Share Name is the same across all nodes.
