Remote agent for multiple Bamboo servers

Hi All,

I have a production Bamboo server and a development Bamboo server and I would like to connect to a same remote agent host.  Is it possible?

I think I would need to install another remote agent on the same remote host (Linux) and with a different bamboo-agent-home location.  Is this the right way to do it?  Is there a better way?

Thanks for your inputs.

Hi Jay,

According to the documentation below:

You can have 2 remote agents running on the same machine if you do what you described:

Note that you can run multiple Bamboo agents on the same machine – you just need to provide a separate home directory for each agent installation.

However, you can't connect one remote agent to 2 different servers.

I hope that helps.

Installed 2 remote agents in the same machine with separate bamboo-agent-home and started them both. They seems working fine with the 2 servers. Anyway, to be safe, I stopped one remote agent before doing any test.
