You can configure up to two instances of DSA Network Client on a single media server by running the config_multiple_instances.sh script. The config_multiple_instances.sh script configures the server's ClientHandler startup script to run multiple instances of ClientHandler.
Running config_multiple_instances.sh overwrites property files for the additional DSA Network Client instances but does not modify the original clienthandler.properties file.
  1. At the command line, in the CLIENTHANDLER_ROOT directory, type: ./config_multiple_instances.sh [-h] [-i] [-n <Number of instances>] [-s <List of server ids>]
    • -h displays parameter usage
    • -i adds a date to the output messages but does not start or stop the ClientHandler service
    • -n specifies the number of DSA Network Client instances to configure
    • -s specifies the list of SERVER IDS to use for configuring the requested DSA Network Client instances

    The list of SERVER IDS must be in double quotes, for example "server1 server2".
