Is it possible to install two probes on one server?




I just want to know, if it is possible to run probe next to the local probe on the same server?

thank you very much for you KB-Post. It is not possible to run two Probe (Processes) on one machine. Please consider running a small VM on the same machine, this could be a work-around then, to run the 2nd Probe in the VM.

best regards.
