Hi Annie,

please find my comments inline.

I trust you intend to do your simultaneous runs on separate machines :)

There is no problem having a hard-coded client attribute. QF-Test will
not mix them up.

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.

Best regards,
