One of our clients wants to deploy a virtualized FCI, with 8 cores licensed, Std with LSA (MSSQL 2016).
They would like to have a 2-node cluster, active - passive but they would like to have 2 instances in this cluster.
Is it possible to ensure that if an automatic failover occurs for any reason, both instances failover at the same time, in any scenario????
The point is to take advantage of LSA and leave the passive node without being licensed. Do you know any way to deploy a multi instance FCI without having to license the second node???
