Backup Server 2008 SQL Cluster with Backup Exec 12.5

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a 2 node cluster that is hosting 3 instances of SQL 2008.  I am confused as to how backup should be configured for DR purpose:

Questions running through my mind:

Do I need to set a seperate backup job targeted to each named cluster resource?
Do I also need to create a backup job for each cluster node?
If I set up a backup job to target both cluster nodes, it would seem impossible since the disk resource is only on one node node at a time.
I would also like some documentation (links, etc.) as well.
