  1. Stop the MSS Server service.
  2. In a text editor, open
<MSS installation folder>/server/conf/container.conf
  1. Locate this line:
  1. Edit the items in red, as follows:
    1. Remove the # to uncomment the line.
    2. Replace x with <n+1>, where <n> is the highest number noted in the other<n> lines.

For example, if the highest number noted is 7, the edited line would be:

  1. Save the file.
  2. Restart the MSS Server service.
