Hi Experts,

I've two instances on DB Server and I want to configure each instance with a specific IP address and port. Can anybody direct to me a good link or solution? Below is the example

InstA      IP:X.X.X.45
InstB      IP:X.X.X.46

I've already check SQL Server configuration utility and under SQL Network settings for TCP/IP protocol IP Address I've IP1,2,3,4,5,6 and IP All and I need to know which one I need to configure. (The loop back address 127.0.0.1 is on IPv4)

Thanks.

Create another tcp endpoint  using this sample script.

CREATE ENDPOINT sql_endpoint
    STATE = STARTED
AS TCP (LISTENER_PORT = 1500, LISTENER_IP = ALL)
      FOR TSQL ()

grant permission to public role >>

grant CONNECT ON ENDPOINT::[sql_endpoint] to [public]

add port in tcpip protocol in ipall section like tcp port=1433,1500

stop sql browser service

now your configured instance listen only on  port 1500 because default tcp ip endpoint  permission will automatically revoke from user when you grant permission on newer endpoint.

for detailed information u can throughout the above links
