This information is only valid for CAST Dashboard ≥ 2.x when using a ZIP file deployment (i.e. without Apache Tomcat).
- when multiple standalone 2.x Dashboards need to be run from the same server
- when embedded AIP Console Dashboards (from v. 1.25) need to be run on the same machine as standalone 2.x ZIP dashboards
Step 1 - Change the port on which the Dashboard is running - Linux and Microsoft Windows
By default the ZIP Dashboards are preconfigured to run on the following ports to accept incoming connections:
server.port line (standalone dashboards only), if commented) and modify the port number to make it unique and save the file:
# Default Port server.port=8090
Restart the application to ensure the changes are taken into account.
If you change the port number for your embedded dashboards, you will need to update the configuration in AIP Console, see Administration Center - Settings - Dashboard Integration:
Step 2 - Change Microsoft Windows service name - Microsoft Windows only
If you are deploying the dashboards on Microsoft Windows and you intend to run them via a Microsoft Windows service, you must make some changes BEFORE you install the services so that each service is unique. For each service that you want to install, perform the following actions:
<unpacked_zip>\dashboard-service-1.exe <unpacked_zip>\dashboard-servicew-1.exe <unpacked_zip>\amd64\dashboard-service-1.exe
Run the dashboard-service-install.bat
The final step is to run the following file to install the Microsoft Windows Service for your dashboard:
