When we install 2 spectrum connectors in same connector machine and you wish to use connector policy separately (Different Policies for each connector) then you have to follow steps as below.



When running multiple instances of the SpectrumIM connector on a single system, by default there is only a single connector policy file which all instances of the connector are using.

- If you want to have different policies for individual instances of the connector, you have to

  • Make a copy of the spectrumim_policy.xml located in …\SOI\resources\Core\Catalogpolicy and then rename the copied file. (Example: spectrumim_policyABC.xml)
  • In the connector configuration file spectrumim_<instance>.xml located in …\SOI\resources\Configurations adopt the information to use a different policy.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><ConnectorConfig ConnectorName="<Connector_Server_Name>">

  <ImplementationClass descriptorClass="" name="" policy="spectrumim_policyABC.xml" sbpolicy="spectrumim_policySB.xml"/>
