I have command suite would like to install a 2nd instance, is this allowed?
What HCS version are you on ?
You need an individual license for individual array to be supported via HCS. You could build a vmware infrastructure to have two HCS instances running on the same physical machine.
Resource groups under the HCS provides different user access to these resources but I found that was more complicated and not a complete solution to segregate the environments.
In what context are you asking whether a 2nd instance would be allowed? For example, licensing or implementation?
Licensing and best practices. My client is a bio med center with (2) depts sharing an array and they were thinking about adding a 2nd instance so the department admins could each manage their storage, but this is not supported and not a good practice.
So, they are going to segregate 1 depts storage to another array and let that dept use that array.
Then, they will install the 2nd instance for that array only.
I opened a support ticket today and got the definitive answer.
Thanks for the reply. I'll pass this along to my client and engineer.
