Question / Problem

Can I use multiple instances of SpaceObServer with the same database?

Answer / Solution

Yes, this is possible. Just configure the same database connection for each instance of SpaceObServer in the options. All scans will be listed in each SpaceObServer user interface and you can generate reports and configure scans from each instance. However by default there will only be one 'SpaceObServer Service' executing scans for a certain root directory. This is the machine where you first add this directory to scan. You can configure the scanning machine(s) from within the 'Configure Scans' dialog (See: 'Observing Server').
