Single or dual XSIBACKUP install for two ESXi with shared NFS storage?

Hello,

I've got 2 ESXi hosts, both connected to shared NFS storage as common backup destination (mounted as /vmfs/volumes/datastore_nas1 on both hosts)

Since I was testing XSIBACKUP on one ESXi host only, it was simple: install dir was

   /vmfs/volumes/datastore_nas1/xsi-dir

and backup location

   /vmfs/volumes/datastore_nas1/backup

I'd like to use XSIBACKUP-PRO on _both_ nodes - do I need _two_ install dirs (like datastore_nas1/xsi-dir1 and datastore_nas1/xsi-dir2), or is it possible to run jobs for both ESXi hosts from only one xsi-dir directory?

What about XSIDIFF licence? Can I have two license files in shared xsi-dir?

According to the EULA and license terms, you can install to one server and run remote jobs in up to 20 hosts via the --host argument.

I see, so 20 hosts _but_ via "--host" from 1 licensed master server only. It is clear now, thanks.
