This suggests to me that the problem is that I can’t have 2 instances from the same IP address. Is this correct? If so, is it possible to run 2 instances at all? The original library continues to run fine while whichever one starts second always fails.
Nope, will work fine. make sure you have different paths (db_parms), different ports (port), and different server names (servername). You can use the same admin_root, though.
You’ll need (obviously) two different config files, and you’ll need to run the second with a -c parameter pointing to the second config file.
If you can’t get it to go, post your two config files.
