Despite we always recommend to install each agent into a different location, it's possible to run several agents from the same executable file on the same host.

Adjusting the ini file(s)

If you're connecting the agent to the same system, setting a distinct name is a must.
If the agent is connecting to a different system, it's not mandatory to change the name but you will need to change the 'system=' line.

Setting a distinct port is necessary, except for RA agents (this can't be adjusted in their .ini).
If the agent is connecting to a different Automation Engine you will need to adjust the cp= line as well.

Starting the agent with a given .ini file

Add the -i parameter followed by the desired .ini file name and location.
Example :
C:\Automic\Agent\bin\UCXJWX6.exe -ic:\Automic\Agent\bin\second_ini_file.ini
