Issue/Introduction

Devtest Workstation is closing by itself on clicking any VSM file

Environment

Release : 10.6

Cause

The workstation.log showed entries similar to:
java.io.IOException: Failed to bind to server socket: tcp://0.0.0.0:2008/A009D6DA33F611E7AC25CAB120524153 due to: java.net.BindException: Address already in use: JVM_Bind
at com.itko.activemq.util.IOExceptionSupport.create(IOExceptionSupport.java:33)

Resolution

Windows taskmgr showed that there was another Workstation already open on the same Windows 16 server. 
Only one instance of the Workstation can use port 2008.
As soon as the second instance of the Workstation tries to use port 2008, it exits and logs the above message.
To configure multiple instances of the Workstation, follow the instructions in this document: How to configure multiple instances of the Workstation on the same Windows installation.
