Multiple Failover Managers on one (same) VM Server/PC?

We have an existing LHSan managment group with a failover manager installed on a seperate physical PC (on VMWare server).

We are implementing a new managment group with two new LHSan units.

Is there a way to load a second failover manager (with diffrent name and IP) on the same box the first one is at?

If I re-run the setup it just says its there; I was hoping I could install to a secind directory and run it on the same box?

You can run the setup on another PC, and then "copy" the vmdk/vmx files to a new directory on your VMWare server, and import it as your 2nd FOM (of course assigning it a unique hostname and IP)

The windows "Install" just automates the copying of the files, and configures the files for VMware server.
