Multiple SQL instances and different ports for each instance

One of my best friends Kjetil Lindl√łkken has done this in the Lync 2013 topology. The issue was how to get the Lync 2013 Enterprise Edition to use different instances for SQL server, and different ports.

Well Kjetil found this out and has blogged about it here:
