For one of our products, we install multiple instances of the same software into different locations on each server.
I need each instance to be installed separately, so I might be running Instance1 as v2.1.10, but Instance2 could be v2.2.1 etc.
If I map instances to projects, then I can parameterise the installations so that I only need a single package for each version, which helps since there are quite a few instances.
- Only the first instance actually gets installed, unless you tick force on every deployment/promotion
- All installations show as successful, even though the package was only installed for one instance.
Does anyone have any alternative strategies for setting this up?
I had wondered if a Project Group level, Force all packages to be reinstalled switch might help.
