I have an installation of Central 5.7 pro running 12 instances on Windows 2003 server 32 bit and have noticed that all instances don't always come up when the machine is rebooted or service started. Central also doesnt handle the right instance when stoping and starting different instances even it is choosed the right way. Example: I select instance of central nr 8 for control and do "shot down central" for the instance 8, it may stop instance 10 etc. !? then start central on the same instance it says "also running" ? It seems that it doesnt have the right control which instance should be active.
