A client install can only be registered in one CommCell. Some agents support multi-instance, so another instance of the agent can be installed against another CommCell but you want be seeing the same jobs in both.


There are options like Service CommCells and Universal Command Centers or Global Repository Cell, not sure if they will match your needs.

I’m going to parrot what @Aplynx is asking.  What is your end goal here?  You can sometimes have multiple installs of a client install, each pointing to a different Commserve/CCID, though there’s not too many reasons you’d want to go through the effort.

You can get multiple copies of data via Aux Copies, and we have all sorts of replication and synching options, all within the same Commserve.

Let us know your challenge and we can advise on the best method for your needs :sunglasses:
