Multiple Web Services and Remote Connection Servers


We’re running two repositories on the same machine. Is it possible to run two instances of web service and remote connection server as well? If I install to a different folder and specify different ports does it work?


Yes but it’s tricky.

There’s two ways to do it that I can come up with:

  1. Use a different user on the computer for each repository. The client configuration file will use settings from the per-user file before it uses a setting from the system file. So you could have a deadline_prod and deadline_dev user on the machine and configure them appropriately.

  2. Before launching the application, configure the environment using the DCONF_ override environment variables. I think it’d be simpler than running multiple users on the computer, just be sure to keep the environments separate.


Got it, thanks very much.
