Multiple replicas of the same database on a single server

The customer wants to create multiple replicas of the same database on the same server.

For example, one replica is used as normal replica database, the other is used as a backup.

Creating multiple replicas of the same database on the same server is possible,

but they know it is not recommended because replica databases use the same Replica ID,

so replicas on the same server may cause something problem during replication.

    Sorry, but clearly we will not do this.

    having multiple replicas on the same server breaks things like

    notesDatabase .OpenByReplicaID( server$ , replicaID$ )

    using the replica ID in a @DBlookup

    replicating databases between servers

    so it would make more sense to prevent the creation of multiple replicas on the same server
