There is a way to add it so you can pick it form the dropdown.  But, I forgot how to do it, or couldnt get it working properly so I have 2 bat files that i run.  One points the rac client to Test, the other points it to Production.

 

The scripts simply replace 1 set of files with another set, removes temp folders and runs genreg.

 

Sometimes I have to logout of my pc and back in again for it to work correclty.  Its not perfect, but it works, and in any case i dont run it very often as i just remote into the servers and use the client on the server the majority of the time.

 

Bat attached.

Thank you Richard.

Actually I'm looking for the way which you mentioned at first, adding items to login drop down menu.

I've found it in TC maintenance page as attached file, so I changed both of 4T and FCC config and add new item but, it doesnt work and I cant connect to second server. Some kind of FMS master error apeared.

Instead, under "Client Communication System" choose:
Use Configurations and Environments

You didn't state which Teamcenter version you are on and its not in your signature (best practice) so I'm pointing to the latest Tc11.4:
https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/tc/11.4/help#uid:xid1256816:index_plm00102:id1361354:xi...
I like using a shared configuration even for private use as the location is the same for all clients instead of residing in the users profile.

I read the help docs about TCCS and using configurations and environments but I wasn't able to handle the situation with just one client. One scenario is to installing two TC clients with seperate tccs and changing FMS_HOME env, stopping last fcc and starting newone using portal batch files, but I want to use just one TC client installation with the ability to connect two servers.

Using Configurations and Environments and defining two server addresses wasn't enough to handle that. How it can restart fms with new setting?

 

Is there any other thing to do?

In the old days, you had to combine the FMS Masters for both (all) Tc environments then point the client to the one with the combined master in the FCC.xml's. This required that all Tc environments have a unique Enterprise ID in order to route to the correct FSC for that environment.

 

Naturally, this doesn't work if you use the environment "clone" procedure which results in all the Enterprise ID's being identical and you'll need to install separate Tc clients then make changes to portal.bat to support multiple clients on the same machine.

 

No matter which approach you take, you cannot run multiple environments at the same time on the same machine. I made a presentation at Siemens PLM Connection this year.
