I've just completed a new install of WC10.1 and discovered that when it starts, the servermanager starts 2 instances of methodserver.
Why is it doing this?
Is it a problem?
Can I stop this from happeing?
Its not a problem - Default setting of Windchill will start Number of method server based on RAM available.
If you want to stop, execute this cmd in Windchill Shell
xconfmanager -s wt.manager.monitor.start.MethodServer=1 -t "codebase/wt.properties" -p
Thi is actually done by the windchill configuration assistant ( wca ) . You will find an entry <ConfigurationRef xlink:href="utilities/wca/conf/windchill/windchillconfigurator.xconf"/> in your site.xconf file.
Within this on the wt.manager.monitor.start.MethodServer=2 currently will be set.
