There are times when the same machine and instance names are used and need to be registered in DPA because they are physically different machines. For example, your company has several different networks that have the exact same machine and instance name combinations. Currently, DPA will not allow this because it has a check for the same machine and instance so duplicate registrations are not accidentally done. Below is a procedure that will help workaround this problem.
Modify a system property to allow DPA to register an instance with the same machine and instance name more than once. This is a one-time configuration and SolarWinds suggests setting this parameter back to False after registering an instance multiple times. This will prevent accidental registration of the same instance more than once when it is not wanted.
