Is there a way to make SQL Backup 6 cluster-aware?
As it turns out, when we failed over to the other node, it turned into a trial, because the passive node had no idea that SQL Backup was activated. When I tried to activate today, I was at my number of servers limit, so that was unsuccessful. I had to go and deactivate the passive node in order to successfully activate on the now active node (another workaround would have been to fail back over, but that is far less customer-friendly).
Of course this means that the cycle will repeat itself the next time we have a failover. If I had activations to spare I would simply activate both nodes, but I don't, and since it is only one instance of SQL Server, I don't think anyone should have to go tell their boss they need to purchase additional licenses to cover standby nodes. Is there some aspect of setup I missed that could have made this installation failover-safe?
