Thread Multiple dbsrvr instances as NT Service

I assume the answer is NO but I'm asking anyway with the hope that I am wrong.

Is it possible to run more than 1 instances of the server as an NT Service.
If the answer is no, can this be achieved by re-compiling the server and changing some NT Service related parameters ?

Hi Norman.

I am not certain as I have never done it but I believe this is possible as long as the service is using a different port than the other instance and I would guess also has a different exe name.

Regards
David.

Hi David
Thanks for you input.
I recompiled the server with some changes and so far everything seems to work as expected. I had to modify the following parameters to get it to work : ServerName, exe name, AdminPort, MainPort.

Yes - that is pretty much it. We have been running multiple servers (up
to 4 in our case) for years this way and it works fine.

Norman,

Sure, this is covered in the manual here:

(at the very bottom of the topic).
