Similar to #9908

Having a two-servicses setup on one PC with one .cnf, having these two sections:
datadir         = C:/MySQL/data_11/
port            = 3306
server-id       = 1
bind-address    =

datadir         = C:/MySQL/data_20/
port            = 3306
server-id       = 2
bind-address    =

Installed and started them like this:
  c:\mysql\bin\mysqld-opt.exe --install mysql-11
  c:\mysql\bin\mysqld-opt.exe --install mysql-20
  net start mysql-11
  net start mysql-20

Start adminstrator for 'mysql-20'-service and  "Service Control" tab shows data fro 'mysql-11' service.

How to repeat:
Make my.cnf as shown in description
Install servicses and start servicses.

start Administrator whith connection nr:2 and "service control" shows data for service nr:1

As far as I can understand you try to start two services which use one TCP/IP port. Could you please change in section mysql-20 TCP/IP port and try again ?

Yes, I _do_ start two servicses on One PC on the same port(3306), but I have bound each service to a spefic IP. (In the "advanced" tab of the TCP/IP protocol I have added two IP's to the same NIC)
I can use command-line mysql.exe or MySQL ControlCenter to connect to the different servicses. I is only Administrator which gets confused over the two servicses.
I'll try to change the port and let you know the result.

I was able to reproduce the bug. Probably Administrator take any information about service from first service of secvice list.

This behavior is kind of intended. Actually, MA cannot handle multiple installed instances well. It was never made for such a case as this will be handled by the new tools, which are currently under development. So it makes no sense to build that feature also into MA.

can you reveal names and expected release dates for the new tools?
[6 Jul 2006 8:57] Jesper Hørup
At 3 jan 2006, you wrote about development of new tools for handling multiple instances of Mysql server.

6 months has passed, but no new tools.

Will you re-open this case, or can you give an estimate when We see the new tools.
