Second instance of NAV Business Web Services

has anybody tried to access web services on a second instance of NAV Server ? I follwed the instructions in "Walkthrough: Accessing Multiple NAV Databases from a Single NAV Server Computer" from nav_install.chm which describes how to install two NAV servers on one machine, using port sharing.

Now web services are still available for the first server (the standard one) but not for the second:

http://localhost:7047/DynamicsNAV/WS/Services - works
http://localhost:7047/DynamicsNAVCronus/WS/Services - does not work: Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

I tried to set a different web services port in the configuration file of the second instance, but frankly, I am not even sure how to set up a second web services service using the sc.exe command...

Any insights on this ?

    There are a couple of posts on my blog, which describes in detail how to do this, actually there are a number of .bat files, which takes care of adding, deleting, starting and stopping service tiers - including web service listeners.

    Thanks! This was most helpful.

    Apart from that, the other entries in your blog seem interesting as well. We need more informal knowledge transfer like this ! =D>
