IGS Instances

Hi BW Gurus,

I'm having problems with IGS Server, Can anyone please tell me how many IGS instances we can have on one server, is there any related document to configure different IGS instances on one server?

We are having One IGS server, which automatically shutdowns every one hour, I dont know why our basis team has configured like that. I checked with our basis team they mentioned to me that we only have one instance running and it shut downs automatically after 1hour.

Can anyone suggest how to configure IGS server and have multiple instance running on one server, so that if one is shut down automatically after 1hr, the other instance can run.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Deepak,

    are you sure this is not a misunderstanding? Why should the instance shut down? What is done by default after an hour is a reconnect but this is not shutting down. Do you actually see that IGS is not working after an hour?

    If you really need several instances, OSS note 607940 could be helpful (but unfortunately doesn't answer the question whether the instances can be on one server).

    Regards, Klaus

    I assume you are talking about the IGS "stand alone" version running on windows.

    If this is case, you cannot have multiple instances of IGS (specifically the Multiplexer or MUX) running on one server. It is possible to have multiple portwatchers running on one server servicing one MUX.

    I'm not sure why your Basis team stops a restarts it every hour. My only thought is that they do not have the recontime parameter set to a small number (<500) as the default is 3600 (1 hour).

    I hope this helps,
