Multi ocsinventory communication servers on single Ubuntu 16.04 Server

Putting together a test environment where I would like to configure multiple ocsinventory communication servers(no ocsreports) each tied to their own mysql database on a single ubuntu based server.

I have run the setup.sh to configure the base installation, and chose not to jnstall administative server.  I the. created a ocsweb1 & ocsweb2 mysql databases using the .sql scripts in the ocsreports/files directory.

I have created (2) z-ocsinventory-server.conf files each with their own virtual directories for /ocsinventory.  I reloaded apache and everything appears to work correctly.

When i point ocs agents they will only populate one of mysql databases.  I have double checked config and haven't identified why this could be haplening.

Has anyone deployed aomwthing similar?  I would like to just run multiple communication servers and not ocsreports.

Appreciate any help.

Agents send their inventory only to one server but not to multiple server. Actually this is not planed to develop such functionality.

Not what I am looking to do.  Agents would only report to (1) ocsinventory server.  What I am trying to accomplish is  to host multiple ocsinventory servers on a single apache instance without running multiple instances of the ocsreports admin console and seperate ServerNames (site1.test.com, site2.test.com, etc).  Instead I would like to use different virtual locations of /ocsinventory to point to their own mysql database.  Something like the following:

ocs agent A -> test.com/ocsinventory -> mysql db A

ocs agent B -> test.com/ocsinventoryb -> mysql db B

Not asking on the Agent end, but for the server.  I have been able to get multi site configurations working on a single server with apache configs tied to seperate ServerNames, but would like to streamline further and only use virtual locations.  From testing it appears like mod_perl may be the issue and only able to get tied to a single virtual location.
