Only 1 of my 2 remotes are showing on the list
« on: April 20, 2018, 10:12:31 am »
Hello,

The computer running my VHF server went up in smoke.   I set up a new server for my VHF ops on a new computer, I was unable to grab the database.db off the old one, so this is all new.   When I publish the server to the list, the VHF will show up, and the HF one disappears.   If I republish the HF server, then the VHF disappears. 

The are on different server ports.

What am I missing?

The VHF is labeled W2SFD VHF
The HF is labeled W2SFD 6-80m KPA/KAT......

Start one of the servers and leave it running.

Open Notepad as an administartor. Navigate to server.xml in the settings folder where the second server was installed. Near the bottom of the file, look for a line that looks like this

<ORBID>12345</ORBID> 

Edit out the number you see and make it look like this

<ORBID></ORBID>

Save the file and start the second server.

Ok,  I did that and it keeps booting up as 10128.   Each server is on it's own computer, I didn't communicate that very well.

Did you have the first server up and running and published? Doesn't matter if they are on the same machine or not.

Edit the 2nd server.xml file again and also delete apikey.txt (main server folder).

Start the 2nd server up.
