    Hello.

    I’m learning SCADA via Rapid SCADA.

    I successfully installed and setup first pair of Rapid SCADA instance.

    my laptop server and pi communcator is communicate real time.

    I want to make double pair on same laptop for other pi.

    but I can’t found any way for make double.

    I understood there is a way, that is 1 profile having 2 communicator line.

    but this case SCADA Web displaying same view and communicator data is mixing in database, because we are using same Server.

    I want to seprate between old one and new one.
    If I possible, I want to make double SCADA system on same machine.

    so,
    I want to know these.

    1.
    I were using ‘default profile’.
    If I add new profile, is it work sepratly on same Server?
    How to setup?

    2.
    Could I install and setup multiple ScadaServer seperate by port on same machine ?
    if it can be, how to it?
    what files need for copy?

    please let me some advise.

    Thanks & Regards.

    Hi,

    If you want to create 2 different systems, you should create 2 projects in Administrator.
    If you want to create a 1 distributed system, you should create several profiles within a 1 project.

    All profiles use the same configuration database that is included in the project.

    Could I install and setup multiple ScadaServer seperate by port on same machine ?

    On Linux:
    You can copy Rapid SCADA to different folders like
    /opt/scada1/
    /opt/scada2/
    But during installation you need to change installation script to create daemons having different names.
    Files to update:
    apache/scada.conf
    daemons/scadaagent
    daemons/scadacomm
    daemons/scadaserver
    scadarestart.sh
    scadastart.sh
    scadastop.sh
    svc_install.sh
    svc_uninstall.sh
    ScadaAgent/*.sh
    ScadaComm/*.sh
    ScadaServer/*.sh

    Honestly, I don’t think it’s a good idea for beginning.

    May be it’s easier to use virtual machines. For example, you don’t install several PostgreSQL servers on a one machine even if it’s technically possible.

    Why do you need 2 copies of Rapid SCADA on the same machine?
