For DevTest 10.7.0 and later on Linux it is no longer possible to run multiple Simulators by starting multiple SimulatorService commands.
You must run multiple Simulator commands.
Release : 10.7.0 and later
Component : DevTest Simulator
In LISA_HOME/bin copy Simulator to Simulator1
Copy Simulator.vmoptions to Simulator1.vmoptions
Update the following properties in the vmoptions file.
-Dlisa.simulatorName=SIM1 (each Simulator should have a unique name)
-Dlisa.net.1.port=20141 (for the new Simulator; must use a different port than 2014)
-DLISA_LOG=sim1.log (to distinguish between the Simulator log files).
Repeat for each additional Simulator, each with their own command, vmoptions and name.
The following example script starts 2 Simulators:
nohup $DTBIN/Simulator1 2>&1 >$DTLOG/startsim1.log &
nohup $DTBIN/Simulator2 2>&1 >$DTLOG/startsim2.log &
NOTE: When you run a nohup command the PID will display on the next line of the command line. If you do not remember the PID and have to kill the process do a ps -ef, it will list out all the processes running. Look for a line that has -server in it.

[email protected]:/opt/CA/DevTest10.7.2/bin# nohup: ignoring input and redirecting stderr to stdout
My process ID is 1055.
This is how I found the the process ID later:
Look for a line that has -server in it:
