Can multiple SQL Instances use the same backup file?

Postby RML51 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 3:32 pm

I have a SQL Server with 3 instances (INST1, INST2, and INST3). I want to have seperate MyDB.vmdf files and MyDB.vldf files on each of the 3 instances that would all use just one MyDB.SQB file. I assume that because VR only reads from the MyDB.SQB file that this would be okay. Please let me know if this would work.

Thanks
