Hi there

I have a 2-node SQL2008R2 Active/Passive Cluster running multiple instances
Since each instance has it's own SQl Virtual Name\Instance


We currenlty have a SQL Toolbelt single license, and not sure how many more licenses will i require to support my databases

    SQL Backup is licensed per server. On each server, you can run as many instances as you want, clustered or otherwise. In the case of a 2-node cluster, you would need 2 licenses, one for each server node.
