This information is only valid for CAST Dashboard ≥ 2.x when using a ZIP file ZIP deployment (i.e. without Apache Tomcat).


The following situations require some small changes to the Dashboard deployment process so that each Dashboard deployment does not conflict with another:

  • 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

Required changes

Step 1 - Change the port on which the Dashboard is running - Linux and Microsoft Windows

By default the ZIP/JAR Dashboards are preconfigured to run on the following ports to accept incoming connections:


If you want to run multiple ZIPs on the same server, you must ensure that each Dashboard uses a unique port. You can change the port in the following file:

Code Block



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 or run the wizard installer in ≥ 2.5 so that each service is unique. For each service that you want to install, perform the following actions:

Modify the dashboard-service-install.bat file

Open the following file with a text editor:

Code Block


Code Block
set SERVICE_NAME=dashboard-service-1
set DISPLAY_NAME="CAST Dashboard Service 1"
set DESCRIPTION="CAST Dashboard Service 1"

Save the file.

Rename the .exe files to match SERVICE_NAME

Now rename the following .exe files to match EXACTLY the name you chose for SERVICE_NAME in dashboard-service-install.bat:

Code Block

E.g. where SERVICE_NAME=dashboard-service-1:

Code Block

Run the dashboard-service-install.bat

The final step is to run the following file to install the Microsoft Windows Service for your dashboard:
