R2 installation with R1 still running

Member since: 2007
Thought I just ask this question just in case we do this on our server. Can I install R2 on the server and then still have an R1 sp3 site running without upgrading? Will the scheduler and such things be replaced?

    I just did that and yes, the scheduler get replaced and worse, all schedule jobs stops working too!

    Now the scheduler only works for the R2 site, not for the 4.x and 5 R1 sites :(

    A fix for this ASAP would be nice!

    Try following in your R1 webconfig.worked for me

    <assemblyIdentity name="EPiServer.Scheduler.WKTL" publicKeyToken="8fe83dea738b45b7" culture="neutral" /> 

    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="5.1.422.4" />

    Can anyone confirm that this fix works, and that R2 can be installed on the same server as an R1 site is running?

     Thanks !

    I have a site with both R1 and R2 running. Works fine, except from the scheduled job issue that is solved with the web.config change described above.
