  • Yes, you should be able to do that. You may want to consider a different installation since you'll be linking to the same metaverse object if you're on the same box - but that of course depends on what you want to test.

  • Thank you.

    If I tried to import MA, it ask name of MA ? I never try it because it is production environment.

    Is it possible to have other metaverse for test in that MIIS ?

  • As to your question about exporting and importing MA configs - if I have several AD MA's that are similar, I'll configure the first, export it, and then do imports for the following MAs and update things like MA Name, connection info, partitions etc. It's a nice time saver.

    If you're doing a test, I would recommend copying your config to a test environment rather than trying to test inline with your production system. I've been doing this stuff for the last 9 years and I wouldn't dare take a chance on a real system, even knowing it inside and out.. It's like trying to rewire your house without disconnecting the electricity.. I've seen way too many accidents..
