I am investigating the possibility of running two versions of PMDF
within s single cluster. The reason is to ease in a new version in a
rolling upgrade rather than change everything at the same time.

The following logicals are already defined to point at locations outside
the PMDF_ROOT tree:


I would imagine the config file, mapping file and alias file would also
need to be moved to avoid messy synchronizations in configuration
changes. I expect to have to do separate compiles for each one
(multiple PMDF_CONFIG_DATA files).

The main concern is to do with communication across the cluster, mainly
locking stuff. Is there anything there that would mean say a 6.2-1 and
6.3 (or 6.3 & 6.4) PMDF machine should not be clustered with a common
set of queue files ?
