Install Multiple Mobile Server Environments Onto the Same Host System (Doc ID 556137.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Lite - Version to [Release 10.2 to 10.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It is not recommended to install multiple Mobile Server environments onto the same system as there are conflicts with the ports utilized, the environment variables that are set for the Mobile Server, and internal files that are shared between the multiple environments, such as the polite.ini file. However, sometimes it is necessary to configure a development environment and a test environment onto the same system due to limited available resources. This article is intended to describe the steps necessary to install multiple Mobile Server environments onto the same host system for when it is absolutely necessary. These steps should only be attempted when all of the Mobile Server environments are running the same version of Oracle Database Lite.

In order to run multiple Mobile Server environments, every environment must have a separate database instance for the Mobile Repository. Mobile Servers that are not part of a web farm cannot share the same Mobile Repository. In these steps, two database instances will be utilized: REPOS1 and REPOS2.

It is recommended that the operating system netstat utility be utilized to ensure that the ports chosen for the second Mobile Server HTTP/HTTPS, RMI, JMS, and MGP ports are not already in use. If the ports are already in use, the second Mobile Server will fail to start and receive a Address already in use: JVM_Bind error.
