We have a requirement to have multiple logical webMethods environments running on 1 server in our development environment. From reading through information on the forums, there is an approach to install multiple instances of webMethods and change the ports for IS so that they do not conflict for the different instances of the server.
We are currently using the following components of webMethods 6.01 on a Sun Solaris Server:
- Integration Server
My questions are:
What is the best practice approach to installing mulitple instances of webMethods 6.01? (On the forums, there was one approach to re-install in an alternate directory and another approach to copy the contents of the webMethods home directory to an alternate location)
How is webMethods Mainframe effected by having 2 separate installations? Is is possible to have 2 instances of webMethods mainframe running on the same server or does this create a problem as Mainframe uses an unconfigurable port to service clients connecting to it.
