I have set up a server to monitor log shipping (SQLMon01) from a primary (SQLApp01) to a secondary (SQLApp02) and it's working just fine. I want to monitor log shipping on another system. Primary (SQLComp01) to a secondary (SQLComp02). It'll likely have a different schedule.
Can I use SQLMon01 to monitor a second log shipping setup? I tried this once before and the old alerts were replaced with new alerts and I lost my old alerts. I was thinking I could just rename the job - LSAlert_SQLMon01 to a different name (like LSAlert_SQLApp) and set up a new LSAlert_something for SQLComp. Two different LSAlerts for the different systems would be less confusing. I really don't want to have to build another server just to monitor.
