    mmc snap-in

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to work out the best possible way to control multiple instances of indesign server on a windows machine. One way would is to use the mmc snap-in add on which provides a way to configure multiple instances with their own port and command line option which seems nicer than writing batch files. I could configure this from the Introduction document but there is one issue. All instances start and stop together when you start and stop the IndesignServerService from the services panel and i cant find a way to start/stop an individual instance.

       

      I also tried to create individual named windows services in this fashion -

       

      sc create "ID1" -config binpath= "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5.5 Server\InDesignServerService.exe"

      sc create "ID2" -config binpath= "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5.5 Server\InDesignServerService.exe"

       

      this works but now they dont accept startup params. Am i trying something impossible with this approach?

       

      Thanks,

      PT
