Dumb question about the test_server

Thu Nov 4 11:15:31 CET 2004

Hello to all,

I have a very dumb question. I am using the test_server app 
to validate my software. I am having a ball :). Yet, I encounter 
the following problem. A newcomer is about to join me. We will be 
developping on a unique UNIX server. What happens is 
that when I run the test_server twice, the second test_server 
launched just crashes. Obviously, this is due to some name 
registration clash done at init time by the test server. 

This typically happens when two different users logged onto 
the development server launch the test server at the same 
moment from the UNIX shell.

Before I start diggin' into the test_server code, I would
like to know if anyone could suggest a way to handle this?

I tried to -name the process, but that doesn't seem to help.
