BOE XI 3.0 multiple non-clustered CMS
Is it possible to have more than one CMS on a server that are not clustered?
Tim Ziemba replied
Well an easier way to accomplish this may be to install a free program like vmserver and set up 2 different OS's although this is not recommended if you are going to hit the server hard (like production). In that case you really should have 2 different servers.
But for a test system to play around with it would make more sense and be easier to manage.
If you create a new SIA/CMS then you will also need all the reporting servers/etc and have to avoid port conflicts on the server. You should be able to do this too although I don't think our product is documented/tested this way.
Another optioon in 3.0 is the new delegated administrator function where you can build a specific access level in the CMC to provide small groups the ability to administer their own objects (folders, universes, reports, users, etc) I think I'd try this way 1st
