Re: [QF-Test] Running the same scripts more than once simultaneously.

Simultaneous runs are a typical business case. Critical are of course all kind of shared resources, used by the running systems (e.g. log/lock/config files on network shares, data base access ...). All those need to be identified to avoid conflicts. Hope this helps.
