  That's a start.  You also need to change all uses of "%{sql:...}" to use the new names.

So I noticed I didn't replace the sqlmod-inst option in counter.conf. After doing that I realized that this means the same Max-Daily-Session on both virtual server would be checked against the first database only! So, since the sql instance is bonded to the database check, this means I would have to redefine and duplicate all checks for the second database?

  For now, yes.  There may be ways to fix it, but I'd have to take a deeper look.
