  • Hello,

    Do you created a new shared disk, a new network name, a new resource group, assigned new ip addresses for that new instance at the operating system level?

    Hope this helps.

  • I was overthinking this, it's a dumb question now that I'm thinking simple, can I get the moderator to delete the question?

    Not an issue ,no question is dumb but just matter of experience. I could even ask a dumb question about unix server on unix forum as I am not aware about it. Anyways I guess Alberto nailed it, I have proposed his reply as answer ,if it is actually what you were looking for mark it as answer.

    Please mark this reply as the answer or vote as helpful, as appropriate, to make it useful for other readers
