I have 2 instances of SQL server running on 2 separate servers; let's call them sql1 and sql2.

How do I make sure that one database in sql1 is backed up to sql2 at least nightly?

I know nothing about this, so if you could point me to a good tutorial, that would help immensely.

Thank you,

I'd read this article from technet magazine: Achieve High Availability for SQL Server It sounds like (from what you've asked for so far) that log shipping will do what you need it to do. Take a look at this article on how to set-up log shipping: Configuring Log Shipping.
