Pinned topic Defining two TAM services in TIM using a single machine for the adapter

‏2013-03-22T10:32:46Z |
Hi
my customer would like to integrate TAM with TIM using the TAM combo adapter. They want to create 2 TIM services as they need to support for a while 2 TAM installations, one with TAM 6.0 and another with TAM 6.1.1 to which they are migrating. As they have quite a tight schedule they would like to avoid to use a different machine for each adapter and they are thinking to install two TDI images in the same machine, each one with its own JVM. Apparently using the same JVM could lead to errors. Did someone try something similar? Would it be a supported setup?
Thanks in advance
Jordi.

    I see no reason that this should be supported - it is definitely supported to run multiple different versions of TDI on the same machine - so I believe you can assume that this is safe - but raise a PMR if you really want to be sure.

    Then instrument the 2 jre with the different TAMs jre.

    That should be it....

    Of course you need to patch the different TDI installation individually - but I should think that is should work without problems - if not it should be fairly easy to circumvent...

    Thanks Franz! we'll route the question via PMR. BTW, I guess you meant: 'I see no reason that this should not be supported' , right?

    Blush - my brain is to slow for my fingers - or is it the other way around :-)

    You are right - I believe it is supported - but I am not sure for the special case of running the SAME version on one machine...

    I sorry in advance for speaking openly.

    I am guessing that consultation with Mr. Franz and opening PMR is cheaper and faster than a thousand buck of a 'temporary' server. It is just a 'temporary' for crying out loud. Also, why not installing the TAM combo adapter in a 'temporary' idle server, like the TAM Policy Server? I am sure you have two of them, one new one old, right?

    Like Taco Bell always saying 'Think out side the bun' my man.

    You are right - but sometimes the politics (especially in outsourcing environments) makes common sense a missing factor...

    When I answered I read that "between the lines" - this may be wrong - so thanks for stepping in and kicking some common sense back here :-)
