Multiple AppVeyor agents, single server

Hi -

It would seem like it AppVeyor Agent has its own environment key? Does this imply that multiple (different) agents cannot be deployed to the same server because when the deployment agent is setup it requires for the environment key to be specified.

    That's true you can install only a single instance of Deployment Agent (and why would you need more?), but what's the most exciting you can use the same "access key" for multiple environments. If you open environment settings you'll see its "access key" field is editable - just copy key from one environment to another and you'll target the same deployment agent.

    :) That is so obvious.

    But can you target multiple agents with the same key? Use case: a cluster. If I have boxes called WEB01 and WEB02, can I set up the agents on each machine to use the same key so that I can deploy to the "environment" and have it upload to both machines?

    Yes, absolutely you can, you scenario works for many customers.
    By the way in next few days we will release new settings for you to set number of remote agents you expect to pick up deployment job. Deployment will fail if less than expected number of agents picked it up, therefore you will be aware of inconsistent deployment if this happens.
