    Running Multiple Instances of JBoss 7 on a Windows 2008 Server

    Greg Davis Newbie

      I am having difficulties getting two instances of JBoss 7 to run on a Windows machine.


      I have the main instance listening on the default ports.


      I copied the entire folder structure to a new one called JBoss-AS-Web-Org2.


      I edited the standalone.xml file to add a port offset on the Org2 copy.  It looks like this:


      Here is the management ports section:


              <native-interface interface="management" port="29999"/>
              <http-interface interface="management" port="29990"/>


      Here is the port bindings section:



              <interface name="public">

                  <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address:}"/>



          <socket-binding-group name="standard-sockets" default-interface="public" port-offset="200">

              <socket-binding name="http" port="8080"/>

              <socket-binding name="https" port="8443"/>

              <socket-binding name="jmx-connector-registry" port="1090" interface="management"/>

              <socket-binding name="jmx-connector-server" port="1091" interface="management"/>

              <socket-binding name="jndi" port="1099"/>

              <socket-binding name="osgi-http" port="8081" interface="management"/>

              <socket-binding name="remoting" port="4447"/>

              <socket-binding name="txn-recovery-environment" port="4712"/>

              <socket-binding name="txn-status-manager" port="4713"/>




      When I start it up it still binds to the default ports and populates the logs in the original copy of JBoss.


      I have tried editing the set DIRNAME parm in the standalone.bat file with no luck.  Here is what I tried:


      set DIRNAME=E:\JBoss-AS-Web-Org2\bin\


      I tried it with several iterations of the path with no luck.


      I tried this recommendation as well:  http://community.jboss.org/wiki/MultipleInstancesOfJBossAS7OnTheSameMachine


      At the bottom of this thread a poster mentions adding the -Djboss.server.base.dir=instance1 parm.  I tried it using my path with no luck.  I tried it several ways with no luck.


      Any ideas?
